Looking Good and Having a Good Time

Fawn Parker

Cohabitation with John Travolta; a never-ending Canadian Shield; the ghost of Steve Jobs wailing from a cracked iPhone 3; the stories in Parker’s Looking Good and Having a Good Time are sharp, delightful, surprising, and, most importantly, never boring. Parker’s characters engage awkwardly with the world around them, while her vivid imagination and sense of humor allow them to reach dizzying heights.


Co-founder of BAD NUDES and the poetry editor of Hybrid Heaven, Fawn is a writer from Toronto currently living in Montreal.

“These four stories etch out the topography of modern estrangement with a diamond-cutter’s tools. Wry, surprising, and seemingly effortless, Parker’s prose offers a glimpse into an uncanny world where the familiar slow-dances with the absurd and comes away with sweaty—and indelible—handprints on its jeans. An assured and remarkable debut.”
