Abstract:

Inverted Pyramid explores Canada's drift during WWI from a world of production to one based on finance, with all the attendant problems we are still enduring today. The novel offers a colourful account of British Columbia during this time through the history of two brothers -- Rod and Grove Norquay -- who belong to an old BC family. Rod hopes to build on the family's past success in forestry, but Grove, the older brother, takes the family's assets and invests them in finance -- with disastrous consequences. Even as the world declines into a post-war depression, Rod is forced to liquidate much of his family's timber holdings, but he remains hopeful that he and family, working with their own hands, will be able to make a good life for themselves -- even as the rest of the world totters into the horrors of modernity.
