An early modernist classic in Canadian literature, Sheila Watson's The Double Hook is a heady blend of existential musing and symbolic narrative set in an isolated community in the BC Interior.

As the destinies of the town's inhabitants unfold, Watson reveals how the price of seeking glory is an inescapable invitation for fear: how in search of light one will inevitably encounter the dark.

Deftly interweaving Christian belief with indigenous lore and natural symbolism, Watson's poetic prose offers more than a story - it offers a reminder that transgression and redemption are often part of the same journey.
