Description

In these provocative short stories, Karen Hofmann creates characters who struggle to connect, or disconnect from entanglements and relationships. With ironic accuracy and sensuous imagery, Hofmann considers a range of human foibles: a newlywed couple who transform into feral beasts during a research expedition; backbiting faculty members who strip down during a post-conference BBQ; an heretical nun who explores the possibility of a new life by imaginatively excavating the fossils of BC's Burgess Shale; and an ambitious bylaw officer determined to make her mark on the city's streets.

In Echolocation, Karen Hofmann sounds the depths of the human heart. Her accomplished stories recall the work of Guy Vanderhaeghe (Daddy Lenin and Other Stories) and George Saunders (Tenth of December).
