9781897535066: The Devil You Know

The Devil You Know is the follow-up volume to Farrell's acclaimed debut collection, Sugar Bush & Other Stories.

The stories in The Devil You Know deal with the familiar, yet ever-engrossing, territories of sex, love, work, birth, and death. Life's defining moments are explored through the eyes of female characters, from children to teens to adults. Family relationships, particularly between mothers and daughters, are a central theme of this collection. All families have secrets and things unspoken, but eventually these dark truths come to light, often in surprising and transformative ways.

About the Author:

Jenn Farrell is an award-winning writer, editor, and creative writing instructor. Her stories have previously appeared in Prism and subTerrain magazines, and her collection of short fiction, Sugar Bush & Other Stories, was released in 2006. The Devil You Know is her second collection of stories.

Review:

"Farrell effectively forges her image as a bad-ass version of Alice Munro. Like Munro, she’s a short story writer who focuses on the lives of girls and women in small-town Canada, but Farrell’s characters get high on mushrooms and dabble in BDSM." The Georgia Straight



"Jenn Farrell’s smart, observant stories about desire and escape take us to the places we’re all afraid to admit we’ve been. Read The Devil You Know with greed and a hot, pleasurable hint of guilt." Sally Cooper author of Love Object and Tell Everything



"The Devil You Know has a distinctly urban thrust, with many of the stories taking a voyeuristic view of small-town girls trying to make their way in big cities. The reader watches them discover that it’s the same shit, different town. ... Complex, multi-layered sentences and language achieve a ‘simple’ colloquial voice that is not simple to achieve." The Malahat Review
