Fortune of Wolves by Ryan Griffith
What would it feel like if the world emptied out?
Lowell Garrish has lost everything—his parents, his grandma, the music the waves make on the shore in Nova Scotia. Desperate to hold on to real sound, Lowell sets off on a road trip across Canada with a tape recorder, capturing something from every person he meets and his observations along the way. But as he drives, strange occurrences and mass disappearances imply that something terrible is happening, and Lowell begins to realize that time for humanity may be running out.
Written as transcriptions of now-disintegrated cassette tapes, and meant to be read in random sequence, this engrossing apocalyptic adventure is a self-guided tour into the belly of a deafening silence.

“Griffith’s strongest quality as a playwright is writing characters who you feel like you could meet one day, either walking down the street or in your apartment building. The script’s elegant introspection will stay with you and may even call you back inside the theatre. ” —Rodrigo Flores, Joyful Magpies
“Fabulously imaginative… a howling success. ” —Rodrigo Flores, Joyful Magpies
