"Complicated, passionate, genuine." Chatelaine

Women. Young women, old women. The hair-obsessed, the politically driven, the sure-footed, the bony-butted, the awkward and compulsive and alone. Sleep-deprived and testy. Exhausted and accepting. Among the innumerable wives, husbands, sisters, and in-laws vexed by short temper and insecurity throughout this short story collection, Cynthia Flood’s protagonists stand out as citizens of a reality that the rest of the world will only partially understand. New from the Journey Prize-winning author, Red Girl Rat Boy is a collection of astonishing range and assured technique, whose voices gothic, peculiar, domestic, and strange remain as passionate and complex as ever.

Praise for Red Girl Rat Boy

From the Back Cover:

"In Cynthia Flood ... there's no tidy shuttling between present and past, no chronological storytelling ... The complex narrative demands that you pay attention, and it works; like the lives of her characters, Flood is complicated, passionate, and genuine." - Chatelaine Women. Young women, old women. The hair-obsessed, the politically driven, the sure-footed, the bonybutted, the awkward and compulsive and alone. Sleep-deprived and testy. Exhausted and accepting. Among the innumerable wives, husbands, sisters, and in-laws vexed by short temper and insecurity throughout the collection, Cynthia Flood's protagonists stand out as masters of a reality that the rest of the world will only partially understand. New from the Journey Prizewinning author, Red Girl Rat Boy is a collection of astonishing range and assured technique, whose voices - gothic, peculiar, domestic, and strange - remain as passionate and complex as ever. Praise for The English Stories "Cynthia Flood's complex and intricate collection of linked stories takes a deep pleasure in words and language. And the characters stay with you long after you put down the book." - Globe & Mail "Taken together, the stories ultimately achieve a brooding resonance that captures the literal and spiritual dampness of a provincial scene that all but died out with the last remnants of the British empire." - Quill & Quire "Vancouver writer Cynthia Flood has won a slew of prizes for her fiction, and her latest book, a collection of linked short stories called The English Stories, shows why the accolades are so well deserved. Flood is a thoughtful writer whose richly dense prose opens up worlds to explore." - Vancouver Sun
