Longlisted for the 2016 Giller Prize

The stories in The Two of Us focus on pairs: intense one-on-one relationships and encounters. Characters undergo genetic testing, garden, overeat, starve themselves, consider suicide, travel, have their hair cut, fall pregnant, all while simultaneously driving each other towards moments where they - sometimes unwillingly - glimpse the meaning and shape of their lives and who they might become.
