HARRISON, Keith. Dead Ends : a novel. (Dunvegan, Ont.) : Quadrant Editions,(1981). First Edition. Pp (5),7-135,(1). 8vo, illustrated white card cover s. Keith Harrison (b. 1945 Vancouver, B.C.) Canadian writer and teacher. "Dead Ends is a tale of two cities, Vancouver and Montreal, but it is also a tale of two cultures, two languages, two personalities, and, finally, two visions of reality, where 'real' art sits in judgement of imagined life. It is a deeply political novel, concerned with takeover of all kinds. The narrator, a woman, knows something of the forms of takeover; but, as speech therapist and artist, she must also come to terms with the role of history and, particularly, language in manipulating our lives. In order to analyze these issues, Harrison has had not only to create a structure that mirrors thepolarities and contrarieties of contemporary life, but also to forge a sty le, a language of notation, that captures the trouble psyche of our times."- from the rear cover.
