I am thrilled to announce that my first monograph, The Theatre of Regret: Art, Literature and the Politics of Reconciliation in Canada is now available from UBC Press.
Hardcover and ebook are available for purchase here.
Paperback available via Massy Books.
A few of the chapters first found their way into the world via this blog! Thanks for reading and for all of the feedback I’ve gotten over the years on Novel Alliances.
Interweaving literature, art, and other creative media throughout his analysis, David Gaertner questions the state-centred frameworks of reconciliation by exploring the critical roles that Indigenous and allied authors play in defining, challenging, and refusing settler regret.
