Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this tenth-anniversary edition, the tradition of publishing the best of Canadas emerging writers continues.

The volatile last days of a crippling relationship are played out against the sensuous, surreal landscape of the Amazon. In a haunting story of survival, a daughter observes her mothers struggles to rebuild her life after the death of her husband. French expatriates find refuge in each other when they become clandestine lovers in Quebec, amidst the growing political hostilities that will eventually tear them apart. As a black community prepares to relocate from Africville, Nova Scotia, the towns oldest member is overwhelmed by her memories of life there. In a desperate effort to startle him into awareness of his familys growing unhappiness, a son plots an end to his fathers string of good luck. When a woman tries to satisfy her lovers obsession with personal tragedy, the fiction she creates begins to eclipse the truth of her own past. A mother and daughter encounter the glitz of Las Vegas and the fallout of nuclear tests in the 1950s Nevada desert when, together, they run away from home.

The winner of the $10,000 Journey Prize for 1998 was John Brooke, for “The Finer Points of Apples.”

Synopsis:

This highly praised anthology has become an important indicator of up-and-coming writers. Past prize-winners have included Andre Alexis, M.G. Vassanji, Douglas Glover, and Thomas King.
