Book Description

July 28 1998
From Canada's internationally acclaimed "Generation X laureate" (The New York Times) come four unforgettable stories told with icy clarity and great heart. This is a world in which fast food, banged-up cars and the grunge of modern adolescence barely camouflage the dark extremes of sex, fear and desire — and the longing for love.

Product Description

Review

"This is a fine book — unflinching, moving and shockingly, bloodily funny. Eden Robinson offers a raw, muscular, urgent new voice: she writes from the heart, and the more of that, the better."
—A.L. Kennedy

"Robinson is good, frighteningly good. She is a leader in the pack of young writers willing to take on the nasty underside of human experience, and she does it with unwavering nerve and startling humour. She'll make you laugh when you know you shouldn't.... She'll tickle and slap you with the same hand."
—Gail Anderson-Dargatz

"A subtle, brutal, and compelling read."
—Esther Freud

"Effectively anonymous, deadpan prose [that] assimilates the discovery that Canadians are as weird and violent as anyone else on the continent."
The New York Times Book Review

"These [stories] are human dramas which she narrates in a style that is disarming in its simplicity and brutal in its honesty. Combining pathos with biting humour, each of these beautifully crafted narratives has a sting.... Menacing but brilliantly conceived narrative[s]."
Independent on Sunday

"... the Vancouver-based author may well be the first native writer to earn an international reputation ..."
Maclean's 100 Canadians to Watch

"Robinson probes the gritty unpleasant aspects of her culture in an unflinching and honest manner."
The Edmonton Journal

"I was not prepared for the forceful way in which Eden Robinson's four stories ... captured my attention and permeated my subconscious... Even weeks later ... my mind continued to dwell on ... the four stories."
The Globe and Mail

"Eden Robinson is one of those rare artists who comes to writing with a skill and maturity that has taken the rest of us decades to achieve."
—Thomas King
