A novel by Hal Niedzviecki
The Archaeologists is the first novel in ten years from the author of the acclaimed novel The Program and the scathing work of social criticisms Trees On Mars: Our Obsession with the Future and The Peep Diaries: How We’re Learning to Love Watching Ourselves and Our Neighbours. Harnessing his well known capacity for sharp-tongued commentary and cutting edge fiction, Niedzviecki breaks new ground with this, his third novel and fifth work of fiction.
He tells his simplest story yet, a story that manages to capture the essence of the huge issues facing society today – the environment, consumerism, ennui, repatriation – by harnessing the quotidian passions and desires of people who want nothing more than an ordinary life they can believe in.
Equal parts Desperate Housewives, Camus, and Salinger, Archeologists tells a simple story fraught with dark comedy, wry observations, and complex emotion.
"A beguiling tale about alienation" - Maclean's Magazine.
"A mystery wrapped in a study of psycho-social malaise, The Archaeologists is an intriguing and gripping portrait of contemporary Canadian life." -- Winnipeg Free Press
