"...a bitterly funny, dark romance...flawless structure perfectly tuned dialogue and dozens of brilliant cameo appearances by a huge cast of supporting minor characters". -- Montreal Mirror

"...witty and pointedly observant in the face of pain and absurdity..". -- Newsday

"...crisp, edgy, wincingly real. This is an exciting new talent". -- Books in Canada

"Strubes...mordant punchlines and equally sharp assessments of urban life on the edge of normal make this familiar story a compulsive read". -- The Globe and Mail

"Strubes's assured prose creates a teeming, ordinary world that is utterly fascinating". -- The Daily News (Halifax)

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.
