The fascinating characters in this short story collection come from differing backgrounds and generations, but all sense disorder lurking beneath the fragile surface of existence. These finely crafted, witty and engaging stories were shortlisted for the 1999 Governor General’s Fiction Award, the Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize, and the Danuta Gleed Award.
