Sinopsis: This book offers eleven stories with a brilliant interplay between words and images - a creative delight, perfectly formed and rich in wit and irony. It presents wood engravings and line drawings, often in collage, from the seventeenth to the nineteenth centuries, and multi-layers of meaning with playful, sometimes surreal, and often mysterious juxtapositions. "Forms of Devotion" won the Canadian Governor General's Award for Fiction, and has also been published in the USA, Germany, Spain and Korea.

Schoemperlen's inventive language and narrative structures encourage readers to be free 'from the prison of everyday thinking' -- New York Times Book Review
