The Apocalypse of Morgan Turner

Jennifer Quist

March 2018

Morgan Turner’s grief over her sister’s brutal murder has become a rut, an everyday horror she is caught in along with her estranged parents and chilly older brother. In search of a way out, she delves the depths of a factory abattoir, classic horror cinema -- and the Canadian criminal justice system, as it tries her sister’s killer and former lover, who is arguing that he is Not Criminally Responsible for his actions because of mental illness. Whatever the verdict, Morgan -- with the help of her Chinese immigrant coworkers, a do-gooder, and a lovelorn schizophrenia patient -- uncovers her own way to move on. 


Jennifer Quist is a writer, critic, and author of two award-winning novels. Love Letters of the Angels of Death (LLP 2013) was long-listed for the Dublin International Literary Award. On its merits, she was named an Alberta Lieutenant Governor’s Emerging Artist of the year in 2014. Sistering (LLP 2015) was awarded best novel of 2015 by the Association for Mormon Letters and long-listed for the Alberta Readers’ Choice Award. Quist's non-fiction is published in New Left Review, The Puritan, The Awl, Maclean's, and The Globe and Mail and on CBC Radio. A graduate student at the University of Alberta studying Comparative Literature and Chinese, she lives in Edmonton with her family. [Photo: A. Quist]

What they say
Not set

"The originality of this novel about grief, loss, mental illness and justice is that you feel the pain and laugh out loud. There are no glancing characters here. You see inside everyone. Central character, Morgan, is a memorable masterpiece." -- Fred Stenson
