Editorial Review

"The migrant souls in Richard Cumyn's new story collection move like shoals of fish, not fully aware that the structures they create together make them, sometimes despite their own wayward inclinations, social beings. Cumyn is a superb stylist with a wry sense of humour. These stories will churn inside you long after you're finished reading them." - Kevin Chong, Author of Beauty Plus Pity & The Plague
