David Helwig

The Stand-In—David HelwigA new novella, The Stand-In, by David Helwig, has been recently published by Biblioasis.

A retired academic is called to a remote university to speak as the replacement for an old friend recently deceased in unusual circumstances. The Stand-In is a transcript of these lectures, revealing a sophisticated tale of art, fame, and adultery that unfolds through rambling anecdotes and flashes of scholarly grandstanding.

“[Helwig’s fiction is] moody, suspenseful and very well-written.”—The New York Times

David Helwig is the author of fifty volumes of poetry and prose, a Member of the Order of Canada, and former poet laureate of Prince Edward Island, where he now resides.
