Too Much on the Inside

Quattro Books, May 2015

from Quattro Books:

Set in the sub-cultural heartland of Toronto’s Queen Street West, Too Much on the Inside explores the depths of human connection as the lives of four people in their twenties converge with the impossible task of escaping their pasts in Brazil, Israel, South Africa, and Nova Scotia. They wrestle with love, heartbreak and angst while trying to build new identities. Too Much on the Inside is an authentic amalgam of relationships and perseverance, in the tradition of Jennifer Egan’s A Visit from the Goon Squad, Camilla Gibb’s The Petty Details of So and So’s Life, and J.M. Coetzee’s Disgrace, illuminated with the author’s own unique insights.
Botha has created a megamix of voices searching to belong in a big city gone sideways…a medley for the post-apocalyptic future that never came.”
