Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The A List edition of Leo McKays superb collection. Like This takes you inside small-town Nova Scotia to expose the troubles that lie at its heart. Set in a fictional town called Albion Mines (the old name for author Leo McKay's home town of Stellarton), Like This offers a gripping, and at times frightening, look at life in rural Nova Scotia. These superb stories are startling and often disturbing, filled with complexity and power. McKay portrays characters with astonishing depth and dead-on emotional rightness. The world is not fair in these stories. There is pain, abuse, solitude; but somehow there is also hope.

Leo McKay Jr. was born in Stellarton, Nova Scotia, and he teaches English in Truro, Nova Scotia. His short story collection Like This was shortlisted for the Giller Prize, and his first novel, Twenty-Six, won the 2004 Dartmouth Book Award. He lives in Canada.
