Editorial Reviews

"Laure Baudot's prose is exquisite, patient, and sophisticated."

— Sarah Selecky, author of the Scotiabank Giller Prize-nominated <i>This Cake is for the Party</i>

"Laure Baudot's moving stories have you simultaneously looking in the rear-view mirror and white-knuckling the arm rest while the narrative races down twisting roads, the moral speedometer tracking wildly between zero and 100."

— Margaret Webb, author of <i>Older, Faster, Stronger</i>

“What a pleasure to discover the perceptive and intelligent short stories of Laure Baudot. With affectionate, precise detail, she writes about flawed characters –- of different ages at different stages in different settings -- whose relationships are out of alignment for such a variety of reasons that no story resembles another and yet the collection holds together beautifully. Truly engaging.”

— Isabel Huggan, author of <i>The Elizabeth Stories</i>, <i>You Never Know</i>, and <i>Belonging</i>
