Abstract:

Spat Ryan has demons. They haunt him by day and share his drink at night. Raised in Montreal by a bagman for the Irish mob, Spat has fictionalized or ignored chunks of his life too painful to recall. A chance meeting with an old friend of his father's in a bar on the Main exposes the dark secret they've both been harbouring, the secret that has shaped and defined Spat's tumultuous life. Newly divorced and out of control, his decision to tell all and release himself from the past unleashes a storm of change in both his internal and external life. Spat the Dummy is a confession raw and unrestrained, a modern-day Hero's journey to the Underworld and back, a novel about changing history by confronting it.
