This book of short stories was on the shortlist for the Giller Prize. I thought that the stories were expertly written. Most of the subjects were men working through difficult situations.Many of the men were caught in a life not of their own choosing. The last story or novella describes the life of a young woman who rebels against the Mennonite community that she lives in. Some of the stories show heartbreaking situations. This could have been the winner of the prize- it is that good. ( )
