The fifteen stories in this dazzling collection continue acclaimed author Lauren B. Daviså exploration into her characters psychological landscapes, and ensure her reputation as a writer of razor-sharp intellect and deep compassion.
Weaving these stories together is the notion that what one wants and what one needs is not always the same thing: a tale of a heart-broken father coming to terms with the drug-overdose death of his son; a child who must choose between the safety of her mothers controlling over-indulgence and the wider, more dangerous world; a young girl outsmarting a pedophile during what she calls "the summer of naked men"; to a brilliant but socially awkward woman who deals with betrayal by taking on the persona of a bear... Davis hits the nail on the head each and every time.
Lauren B. Davis is the author of the bestselling and critically acclaimed novels The Radiant City (a finalist for the Rogers Writers Trust Fiction Prize) and The StubbornSeason (chosen for the Robert Adams Lecture Series), as well as the collection of highly praised short stories Rat Medicine & Other Unlikely Curatives. Her short fiction has also been shortlisted for the CBC Literary Awards.
