Suzette Mayr’s Dr. Edith Vane and the Hares of Crawley Hall

June 2, 2017 – calgaryherald.com

Suzette Mayr’s new novel looks at the horrors of academia through a satirical lens by Eric Volmers

“After all, there is a certain risk to writing a dark satire about university culture while still working at a university. Dr. Edith Vane and the Hares of Crawley Hall does not take place at the University of Calgary, where Mayr currently teaches creative writing as an associate professor in the faculty of arts. Instead, it takes place in the not-so-hallowed halls of the University of Inivea, a rotting and perhaps haunted piece of brutalist architecture found in a fictional Alberta town. A Toronto Star critic recently described the setting as a ‘delightfully twisted version of Mayr’s Calgary, a funhouse mirror designed with Kafka and Lewis Carroll in mind.’ ”
