10. Modern Day Satire

Presented by The Vancouver Writers Fest

Suzette Mayr, Tom Perrotta

Vices, follies, abuses and shortcomings—all fodder of great satire—are on full display in the work of these two writers, who’ve chosen the long-established satire genre to put our lives under the microscope. Tom Perrotta takes a swipe at sexuality, identity and parenthood in modern-day America, as his Mrs. Fletcher explores the erotic exploits of middle-aged women just like herself. Suzette Mayr turns a campus novel into a darkly funny gothic horror story of cutthroat peers, ruthless administration, and maggot-and hare-infested haunted halls. Satire done well has always made us laugh, albeit a little uncomfortably, at our own behaviour.
