Spring 1989. Three young people - Noah, Joyce and an unnamed narrator - leave their far-flung birthplaces to end up in Montreal, each on a voyage of self-discovery. A tale that shows the surprising links between garbage-obsessed archeologists, pirates past… and present, earthquake victims, sea snakes, several very large tuna fish, an illiterate deep-sea diver, a Commodore 64, a mysterious book with no cover, and a broken compass whose needle obstinately points to the Aleutian village of Nikolski. Descriptions of violence and strong language. Winner of Canada Reads 2010. 2008. Uniform title: Nikolski.
