Synopsis: In this tenth-anniversary edition, the tradition of publishing the best of Canada’s emerging writers continues.

The volatile last days of a crippling relationship are played out against the sensuous, surreal landscape of the Amazon. In a haunting story of survival, a daughter observes her mother’s struggles to rebuild her life after the death of her husband. French expatriates find refuge in each other when they become clandestine lovers in Quebec, amidst the growing political hostilities that will eventually tear them apart. As a black community prepares to relocate from Africville, Nova Scotia, the town’s oldest member is overwhelmed by her memories of life there. In a desperate effort to startle him into awareness of his family’s growing unhappiness, a son plots an end to his father’s string of good luck. When a woman tries to satisfy her lover’s obsession with personal tragedy, the fiction she creates begins to eclipse the truth of her own past. A mother and daughter encounter the glitz of Las Vegas and the fallout of nuclear tests in the 1950s’ Nevada desert when, together, they run away from home.

The winner of the $10,000 Journey Prize for 1998 was John Brooke, for “The Finer Points of Apples.”

From the Back Cover: “Consistently strong, and maintains the high standard for which it has become known.”
Quill & Quire

“A tight list of who to watch among a new generation of up-and-coming writers.”
–Montreal Gazette

“Readers will be rewarded.”
–Denise Chong, Ottawa Citizen

The Journey Prize Anthology is, without a doubt, the book I most look forward to each year.”
–Bert Archer, Toronto Star
