Voices of Place: Short Fiction for a New Decade
In this incredible line-up of propulsive short story collections, David Bergen (Here the Dark, Biblioasis), Maria Reva (Good Citizens Need Not Fear, Knopf Canada) and Souvankham Thammavongsa (How to Pronounce Knife, McClelland & Stewart) explore the physical and emotional spaces we inhabit. From childhood homes and barbershops to the Canadian Prairies, Vietnam, the islands of Honduras and a small town known as Kirovka, these short fictions celebrate and witness the mundane in its beauty, its intimacy and oftentimes, its trauma. Moderated by Journey Prize-nominated author and editor, Anna Ling Kaye.
