From the author ofThe Town That Forgot How to Breathe, these are dark stories about the people and ghosts that haunt rural Newfoundland. Rich with legends, personal drama, humour and striking characters, the thirteen, award-winning short stories in Shack feature Harvey's distinctive landscape of Cutland Junction, a place centred in the woods where characters live an inland way of life rarely witnessed in Newfoundland fiction.
Whether dealing with ghosts, loners, tragedy, or traditional lore, Harvey captures the people of Cutland Junction with passion, wit and care.
