Summary
"Botanist Alfred Homer, ever hopeful and constantly surprised, is ¡ invited on a road trip through Southwestern Ontario by his parents' friend, Professor Morgan Bruno, who wants company as he tries to ¡ unearth the story of the mysterious poet John Skennen. But this is no ordinary road trip. As Alfred and the Professor encounter towns with familiar names but where Black residents speak only in sign language or where there are Indigenous Parades, house burnings, werewolves, and witches, we realize that this is a journey through the psyche of Alfred and, indeed, though the psyche of Canada. It might just be the quintessential Canadian novel - the one we didn't know we needed. Complete with Alfred's drawings of plants both real and implausible, Days by Moonlight is a Dantesque journey taken during the 'hour of the wolf, ' that time of day when the sun is setting and the traveller can't tell the difference between dog and wolf. And it asks that perpetual question: how do we know the things we know are real, and what is real anyway?"--
