Great Read By a Great Bloke - The Uninvited Guest

John Degen has a novel, the title is The Uninvited Guest, published by Nightwood Editions (

Here are some great things other people, who agree with me as to how great this book is, have said about it:

“Degen has a knack for making the bizarre feel authentic.” – Quill & Quire

"[an] absurdly hilarious book" – Ottawa XPress

"[a] finely written and charmingly Canadian novel." – broken pencil

"I enjoyed this book because I've lived the inside story. The Uninvited Guest offers a fictional and philosophical lens on a wide range of subjects from the lives of professional hockey players to the keepers of the Cup to Eastern European history to storytelling, and blurs the whole spectrum together in a finale full of love, community and companionship". – Igor Larionov, three-time winner of the Stanley Cup
