Lansing Meadows has one last shot to get it right. With the clock ticking, he sets out on the road one last time, to sing his songs to anyone who’ll listen, and to try to right his wrongs, before it’s too late.
Fallsy Downsies is a novel about aging, art, celebrity, and modern Canadian culture, told through the lens of Lansing Meadows, the godfather of Canadian folk music; Evan Cornfield, the up and comer who idolizes him; and Dacey Brown, a young photographer who finds herself along for the ride.
Stephanie Domet lives in Halifax with her husband. Her debut novel, Homing, won the Margaret and John Savage First Book Award. She is forever trying to perfect homemade ravioli, and a piano rendition of “Sweet Caroline”.
“By the time I finished reading this book I was not only a little in love with Domet’s characters, but with the writer herself. You will be too…” —Andrew Kaufman, Author of All My Friends Are Superheroes
