Description

The Shunning 'tears heads off cliches, making us see a whole place freshly. It is a complete world, reeling and tilting but enduring. A fine book, full of bone and muscle. A totality.' Christopher Wiseman, Books in Canada 'The Shumnning shuns easy answers and offers a complex vision of lives in all their contradictions. It's a powerful, humane and moving book.' Douglas Barbour, Toronto Star.
