Trofimuk is one of the most innovative authors writing today, and The Elephant on Karlův Bridge is a tour-de-force. Richly layered complex characters, whispering bridges, night bees and a pachyderm tracing the scent of the savannah in Prague. What more could you ask from a novel? The real elephant in the room—or on the bridge, I should say—is Trofimuk’s own imagination, let loose across the page.—Will Ferguson, author of The Shoe on the Roof and The Finder
Look what arrived last week! Isn’t it a beautiful thing? I opened up a copy and flipped to a random page, and started to read — loved what I read. Flipped some more and read again. I never do this. I’m two books into the future already…I don’t linger or obsess about the newest published book. I move on. This one, I think I could read again right now. I love it that much. If you buy a copy of the Elephant novel and want it signed, I’ll go anywhere in Edmonton and sign it for you. I’ll be officially launching it October 1 at Audreys books in Edmonton at 3 p.m. More on this later.
