Andrew Binks‘ is preparing for the release of his new novel, Strip, forthcoming from Nightwood this October. Strip follows the complicated and troubling story of John Rottam, an up-and-coming professional ballet dancer. A few clumsy steps in the corps de ballet of a prestigious Canadian ballet company sends John fleeing to join a psychotic and incompetent dance troupe in Quebec City, where his dream of a legitimate career are all but destroyed. His final dance becomes a haunting dance of desire, revulsion, insight and, ultimately, redemption. Strip is Andrew’s unsettling, yet deeply inspiring, second novel.
