The Mole Chronicles

Brown’s novel expands the associations of the word “mole” from skin disease to the burrowing animal and to secret societies and espionage, telling the story of familial dysfunction, culture-jamming, eco-terrorism, and regret in the lives of young adults in the 1990s. Moving from the urban decay of Montreal to the beaches of Vancouver and back, and reflecting on diverse cultural and historical phenomena — BMX racing, The Fantastic Four, bush parties, lifeguard obsessions, and the Montreal Ice Storm — The Mole Chronicles is an engaging and innovative debut novel.
