This collection is a testimony to Findley's versatility. Spanning over thirty years of his career, these stories show his evolution: quiet observations, a dab in science fiction, theatre influences and boiling passions. He has a real talent for complex characters in whom he weaves emotions and relationships that climax into new understandings of the human soul. Masterful. ( )

We will sit in a circle longing for the lights of Moscow. We will bite each other's fingers, to see the blood. We will continue to clean our houses. We will make artifacts.
And the morning will come, and so will the night again.
Won't it?
