Rebecca Rosenblum's stories are urban with a strong contemporary feel. The stories record incidents in the lives of twenty-somethings -- students, techies in an office building, a girl toiling in the warehouse of a wholesale fruit and vegetable distrubutor, a boy who hustles for drug money, waitresses. These are constricted and often random lives and Rebecca Rosenblum's vision mercilessly portrays their shapelessness. Here you will find no epiphanies, no moral simplifications, nary a single wispy apercu. These stories with their brilliant and innovative handling of dialogue break the Canadian mould. With her first book Rebecca Rosenblum has achieved what writers long for, a voice and style uniquely hers and experiences that engage and grip readers.
