Mike Spry's debut collection of fiction revels in his characters' idiosyncrasies and shortcomings in ten stories filled with wit and reverie. In Distillery Songs' original and compelling narratives, dogs smoke, monkeys pop pills, cats are humourless, and Jesus drinks hot toddies. With a voice that Vallum magazine calls "a more obsessive, quirky, and pop-cultured version of Charles Bukowski," Spry confronts issues of love, loss, addiction, and desire in a manner that is at once funny, imaginative, and heartbreaking.
