About this title

Synopsis:

Roger Nash gained international acclaim for his title story "The Camera and the Cobra," which won the PEN/O.Henry Prize Story Award, and was anthologized by Anchor Books (PEN/O.Henry Prize Stories 2009) as one of the twenty best short stories published in North America. Nashs short stories explore a theme less familiar in literature but common in life: how the course of our own day-to-day lives can be deeply ambiguous, a sheer mystery to us. He explores the tragedy and humour of this, over a rich variety of lives and situations, sometimes realistically leaving the mystery and loose-ends of life teasingly unresolved for both his characters and readers. He shows how the phrase "mystery writing" can be richly and revealingly extended beyond its more usual application to crimes and their solution, to the weave of everyday life.

About the Author:

Roger Nash is the author of seven books of poetry. His poetry and short-fiction are widely published across Canada, the U.K. and the U.S.A., and have won numerous awards, including the PEN/O.Henry Prize Story Award and the Canadian Jewish Book Award for Poetry. He lives in Sudbury, Ontario, where he is Poet Laureate.
