About the Book

Stuck charts the roller-coaster odyssey of Jack, a twentysomthing would-be actor in search of sex, drugs, and cash. As Jack wanders the streets of Toronto, his series of wild encounters include nuns on the make, Mormons on the hustle, venal directors, and a host of venereal and utterly unforgettable characters.


“Raw poetry and frantic energy … seamlessly incorporating passages of hallucination
and dream into the already surreal narrative.”
-The Globe and Mail
