Editorial Review

Lisa Pike's My Grandmother's Pill scrutinizes the personal embarrassments, ephemeral joys, financial struggles, and eventual ruptures of dysfunctional relationships. Set in Toronto, with flashbacks to Windsor/Detroit, and a junket aboard a Disney cruise-line Caribbean tour-ship, this narrative portrays the abuse of sedative drugs and alcohol, accompanied by slow cognitive dissolution. Stoic hopes clash with betrayals and kitchen sink realities in this gritty quest for an ever-elusive happy ending. - Karl Jirgens (Editor, Rampike)
