This brilliant collection is the amazing debut of a singular newvoice, capturing the post-war European immigrant world and contemporary Canadianlife. In several stories, the experience of immigration is explored through anew generation, one that cannot understand the importing of old hatreds and oldpassions. In other stories, the complexities of everyday life are depicted: ayoung couple who settle their marital differences by boxing, a man who tries tocome to terms with a friend’s suicide, a brother who looks after a seriouslydisturbed sibling.

The stories in Last Notes dazzle with their intellect,wit and hidden emotional depths. A young yet mature voice, Dobozy joins theranks of celebrated new Canadian writers who are making their own sense ofhistory.
