Not Wanted On The Voyage by Timothy FindleyI loved this book. It was relentless and heart-wrenching, but wow, does Timothy Findley ever have an imagination! This book definitely deserves a second read. I loved the character of Mottyl and I hated Noah, Yahweh and all their patriarchal ilk. This would be a great book for discussion in a book group and I really wished that it had won Canada Reads. I’m in awe of an author who can write this way. I think it was Steve MacLean on the Canada Reads panel who said that Lucy was a secret weapon that he was waiting to be used, but I guess history just hasn’t been like that…

I read this novel a few years back and greatly enjoyed it. He is a wonderful writer and I like how he plays with the flood story.
