Across these three wonderfully written stories, small events have major consequences, and take on symbolic significance, as major events fade. In one, a depressed woman participates as the sole female attendee in a therapeutic lumberjack camp where participants chop wood and engaging in primal scream therapy. Elsewhere, a mother and father mourn the loss of their son, each struggling in their own separate ways to cope with his death. Despite the ostensible simplicity of the writing style, this is a voice of delicate complexity, laced with dry, deadpan humour, which springs from a deep and humane imagination.
