Description

A sea witch, a bossy Virgin Mary, and a lesbian widow's wife-in ghost form-walk into a short story collection ...Welcome to Stoop City, where your neighbours include a condo-destroying cat, a teen queen beset by Catholic guilt, and an emergency clinic staffed entirely by lovelorn skeptics. Couples counseling with Marzana, her girlfriend's ghost, might not be enough to resolve past indiscretions; our heroine could need a death goddess ritual or two. Plus, Hoofy's not sure if his missing scam-artist boyfriend was picked up by the cops, or by that pretty blonde, their last mark. When Jan takes a room at Plague House, her first year of university takes an unexpected turn-into anarcho-politics and direct action, gender studies and late-night shenanigans with Saffy, her captivating yet cagey housemate. From the lovelorn Mary Louise, who struggles with butch bachelorhood, to rural teens finding-and found by-adult sexualities, to Grimm's "e;The Golden Goose"e; rendered as a jazz dance spectacle, Kristyn Dunnion's freewheeling collection fosters a radical revisioning of community. Dunnion goes wherever there's a story to tell-and then, out of whispers and shouts, echoes and snippets, gritty realism and speculative fiction, illuminates the delicate strands that hold us all together.
