Fred Dagg meets Henry David Thoreau, Nicholas Reid

Moonshine Eggs
Russell Haley
Titus Press, $34.00,
ISBN 9781877441578

If a novelist calls his main character Rejekt, he can rationalise the name as part of his character’s Czech gypsy heritage. But obviously the late Russell Haley, in this posthumously published novel, wouldn’t be dealing with Harry Rejekt, if Harry wasn’t a reject from wider society. A solitary. A guy living on his own and not quite getting the hang of connecting with other people.
