The Barclay Family Theatre: Stories

Jack Hodgins and his characters have put rural Vancouver Island on the literary map. Originally published in 1981, this collection of short stories revolves around seven eccentric sisters who act out their lives with flair and drama, infecting their family, neighbours and complete strangers with their larger than life ambitions. While laughing out loud, readers are also shown the depth of the human heart, with all its imperfections.

Winner of numerous awards, Jack Hodgins received the Order of Canada in 2010.
