f you took Oshawa, distilled it, and ran it through a funhouse mirror, you’d have Larkhill, Ontario, the setting of Andrew F. Sullivan’s debut novel, Waste. This potent and disturbing book follows the diverging and converging stories of Jamie and Moses, two young men who work at a butcher shop in the city. On their drive home one winter night, they accidentally run over a lion. The lion’s owner, the biggest fish in the local criminal pond, sics his two ZZ-Top-esque enforcers on tracking down the killers of his favourite pet. The result is a step-by-step tour through the basements, bowling alleys, and hobby-shop-cum-drug-dens of the city.
