About Parkway

"Hammertown" is Georges Perec's invention, an imaginary fishing port on Vancouver Island that Peter Culley recognized as the Oulipo writer's vision of what Nanaimo might be like. In Parkway, Culley continues his project of describing Perec's Hammertown from the inside. Deeply musical and infused by Culley's love of rhythm, Parkway is an acute and strongly complicit portrayal of a working–class city, and the world of its margins.
