Robert Fletcher lives with a feral cat in a cabin in the woods on the shores of Lake Huron north of Kincardine, Ontario. Having made a living for over 30 years as a writer in various genres (TV and corporate video scripts, executive and celebrity speeches, advertising copy) he now divides his time between writing, trading e-insults with his son, and a part-time gig delivering happy pills for a local drug store. He describes himself as reclusive and mildly misanthropic. Kaleidoscope is his first novel, which he refers to as an autofictography.
We, however, found Kaleidoscope an often hilarious, sometimes tragic, continually realistic story simply about trying to find your way. Part Joseph Boyden (Black Spruce in Winter), part Terry Fallis (The Best Laid Plans), we're convinced you're going to find Kaleidoscope, and Robert Fletcher, highly entertaining and insightful.
