Spanning the twentieth century to the beginning of the twenty-first, this masterful collection of linked stories follows the life of Amy, through tales stretching back to her youth in 1950s Ottawa, her experiences as a young wife and mother in a small Ontario town, and her later years back in the city. Through a collage of unique voices and points of view - including a dog that introduces us to the neighborhood where Amy lived as a child - The View from the Lane examines the authenticity of memory and the brimming life in the everyday.
