Shortlisted for the Governor General’s Award, these first short stories from Terry Griggs herald one of the most original voices to appear out of Canada in the last several decades. The stories in Quickening are eccentric, wildly inventive, whimsical and fantastic. Her narrative energy sweeps us along, though the real delight of these stories is the gorgeousness of the writing.

Review:

"These are short stories with limits that are elastic, stretching to accommodate narrative shapes that are 'tetrahedral in complexity'."—Pickle Me This

"Terry Griggs [has] made her mark as an original and arresting writer with a potential to be consistently inventive and brilliant."—Jury for the Marian Engel Award

"She's a wildly inventive storyteller, gifted with a superb turn of phrase."—The Montreal Gazette
