In Racket, editor and acclaimed fiction writer Lisa Moore introduces us to ten of the most exciting new writers currently at work in Newfoundland. Featuring a diverse range of previously unpublished short stories, this unique anthology showcases a generation of voices soon to emerge as the next great wave of Newfoundland writers.
“Racket of riotous and remarkable voices.” “Be warned, reader, these stories aren’t a fun jaunt into short fiction. They will challenge and tease you, and the characters will stick with you long past the last page.”
"Matthew Lewis, who kicks off [Racket], is a stylist: he wields words in a way you’ve never read, and it marks him not as an exciting new voice, but one of the most exciting writers in town, period.”
"With a cover design modelled after the Purity Hard Bread label, “Racket” promises to be a satisfying package. There are unifying themes — love, family — but these are handled with rich diversity.”
