Meg Braem’s The Resurrectionists is a darkly humourous gothic tale of tragic romance and anatomical ambition.
Kingston, Ontario. 1869. Magda, stubbornly ambitious and desperate for education in an era when women were ineligible for university enrolment on the basis of gender, disgusted by the impending doom of an arranged marriage to a breathtakingly dull fellow, and suffocating under the oppressive weight of circumstance, strikes a dangerous deal with William, a first-year medical student she catches illicitly collecting his own lab materials in the dead of night. A clandestine friendship soon develops as their secret trysts propel them towards a seemingly inevitable demise. Or do they?
