Description

Against a vivid terrain of images, Findley continues his exploration of the many diverse and destructive acts played out on the personal battlegrounds on which we live our daily lives.

From the realities of contemporary relationships to a fantastic vision of urban life, from social comment to the deeply personal, Stones is a powerful collection of stories from one of Canada's best-loved writers.
