Description

A critical look at the writing of Audrey Thomas and the themes that are inter-threaded through her fiction: lost children and lovers, family history, mothers and daughters, imperialism, and what she described as "the terrible gap between men and women." The book also examines the playful style often employed by Thomas, including her use of wordplay, highlighting the act of writing itself, and how communication works or doesn't work in human relationships. Among the contributors: Ed Kleiman, Jay Gamble, Joanna Daxell, Marlene Goldman, Robyn Gillam, and Veronica Thompson.
