Legendary Canadian cartoonist Seth lovingly shows the rituals, hopes, and delusions of a middle-class that has long ceased to exist in North America--garrulous men in wool suits extolling the virtues of the wares to taciturn shopkeepers with an eye on the door. Much like the myth of an ever-growing economy, the Clyde Fans family unit is a fraud--the patriarch has abandoned the business to mismatched sons, one who strives to keep the business afloat and the other who retreats into the arms of the remaining parent."-- Provided by publisher.

But has she found her tribe... or lost her mind? Flem takes the reader on a colourful journey into the dark heart of the 'other' Brussels by way of a damaged young woman's inflamed nasal canal." --Jacket.
