Description

Ruined Stars combines a penchant for formal experimentation with a unique, often engagingly puzzling devotion to language and its limits. It explores the author's obsession with travel, magic, and sex and includes baroque feats of word play, some gossipy asides, and the insights of a questioning heart.

Editorial Review

"It's the extravagance of Vaughan's vision, together with his lyricism and humanity, that make it possible to walk with him into the darkness, into the place where we are all alone." — Globe and Mail
