Book Description
Wreckhouse is A Midsummer's Night Dream meets Deliverance when mainlander carpetbaggers fall into the clutches of a tribe of traditional Newfoundland cannibals. Set in the ruins of a post-industrialist wasteland, with nary a fish wharf in sight, this dark comedy examines the unreality of living in a society that smilingly markets a culture suffering political, cultural and economic genocide. A rollicking tale of mad doctors, blind shamans, hungry cowboys, sex starved mannequins, illiterate philosophers and flesh eating folkies, it is a bold look at the madness that consumes us.

After three years running a clinic up on the Great Frozen Peninsula Dr. Thomas O'Steinway is driven mad by the isolation and the hospitality of the natives. After a sojourn in a mental hospital he jumps aboard his car desiring to flee the Island. On the way he gets a flat tire in an abandoned mine inhabited by Sydney the caretaker. Unwashed and unpaid Sydney lives in a discarded piece of pipe. Soon the Doctor is drugged and kidnapped and forced to participate in the strange rituals of the Wreckhousers, a cannibal tribe. It all comes to head at the folk "festival" where the bizarre meets the outlandish culminating in a soup supper unlike any other.
