Synopsis:

This title was sold to McClelland & Stewart.

From the Back Cover: “Almost every line in Oxygen contains a secret treat – the tart heart of a candy; an undetonated hand-grenade....Lyon tattoos the page like a born wordsmith – in indelible ink, in dizzying colours....Inhale Oxygen with caution; it’s like a dangerous new drug.”
–Zsuzsi Gartner

“Impressive....Take-your-breath-away stories.”
–Michelle Berry, Globe and Mail

“New pinpricks of light appear constantly, and whole galaxies come into view. . . . Her prose is as sleek and hardpacked as a good argument.”
National Post

“Lyon is like a jeweler, arranging bits of story into hard brilliance....Oxygen is diamond-sharp.”
Uptown

“Annabel Lyon is so sparky and wise. She writes of sadness and of menace, but with a heady lightness. The people in her stories breathe. Their dialogue sasses. If Oxygen were a songbook, it would be jazz.”
–Caroline Adderson

“A bravura performance. . . . Lively, funny, and impassioned. Oxygen is caffeinated writing, in the best sense.”
Quill & Quire

Oxygen is shockingly good. Annabel Lyon’s stories...leave the reader breathless.”
–Linda Svendsen

“Lyon’s versatility shines through in both form and content. . . . [The stories are] virtuoso feats of wordplay that show a writer willing to experiment boldly with language. . . . An impressive debut.”
Toronto Star

“A taut thread of unspoken tension runs through each densely crafted world Annabel Lyon creates....She neither sugar-coats, nor takes us by the hand, but gives it to us straight....Lyon is indisputably an artist, not to mention a painstaking and exacting craftsperson.”
–Lynn Coady, Vancouver Sun

Oxygen demonstrates why [Annabel Lyon] has left the country’s literary elite breathless.”
Elm Street

“Her prose is riveting.”
The Danforth Review
