About this title


These are stories of a twentysomething generation, growing up in the small towns and cities of Canada, now confronting the universal dilemmas of life in the real world. No tidy coming-of-age collection, Pyper?s stories are populated with characters who struggle to reach out -- sometimes painfully, sometimes comically, and not always successfully -- to make sense of their seemingly fractured condition in an equally disaffected universe. First love, first lust, first high, first terrible moment of awareness that in a single moment, life can change forever -- this is shimmering, profound writing that moves from subtly detailed moments of awakening to often brutally shattering epiphanies.

About the Author:

Andrew Pyper's first novel, Lost Girls, was a literary ghost story described as "The Shining as if written by Martin Amis." It won the 2000 Canadian Crime Writers' Association First Novel Award, and the film rights were sold to Jersey Films, the makers of Pulp Fiction and Erin Brockovich. The book was translated into German, Dutch, Italian, and Japanese. His chilling follow-up novel set in the Amazon, The Trade Mission, was called "brilliant" by the New York Times Book Review and "remarkable and compelling" by The London Times.
