Nominated for the 1995 Smithbooks/Books in Canada First Novel award and the recipient of widespread critical acclaim, Alex & Zee is the latest reissue of Cordelia Strube's wickedly astute novels on contemporary relationships.
The story of Zee, an aimless ex-lawyer who has turned his inability to make a decision into a fine art, and his wife Alex, a practical and hard-working social worker who feels her biological clock ticking loudly, Alex & Zee reverberates with the emotional crises of the urban adult. An offbeat portrait of acute observation on city life and life forms, and grimly hilarious at every turn, this is a terrific debut novel from a writer with a fresh and funny perspective.
