Description

Here are ten remarkable stories about contemporary life, family, children and love. They highlight the secret streams that run through relationships: the moments of revelation, the subtle acts of revenge, and the lengths to which we will go for love.

The stories includes a couple who plan an environmental protest by placing the husband inside a cage in front of an aquarium; a middle-aged mother who becomes embroiled with a young man as she tries to understand her son’s addiction; a boy on a Caribbean island who tries to deal with his father’s Nazi past; an old man who obsesses over the size of his coffin and whether he can be transported in it down his narrow apartment stairs; and a couple who uncover their secret fate at the Delphic Oracle in Greece.

Passionate and precise, these stories are infused with an uncommon originality. This is writing of the very first order by one of Canada’s best writers.
