What do husbands, sitting on the porch in the dark, talk about while their wives take a late night walk down a country road? This is the question that opens Montreal poet Robyn Sarah's long-awaited debut collection of short fiction. In exploring the quiet lives of the men and women in these stories, Sarah reveals herself as the most graceful and confident of writers. With a poet's unerring eye for detail she allows everyday events to resonate with surprising delights. With a deftness of touch rare in contemporary fiction, she ensures that her stories linger in our thoughts long after we have finished reading them.Fiction 1992
