Nine short stories set in an array of locations and about a variety of characters. Sometimes a little precious.

"Skibsrud's novel The Sentimentalists was the surprise winner of last year’s Scotiabank Giller Prize, as well as causing a headache for her small Nova Scotia publisher, Gaspereau Press, which had trouble meeting demand. She returns with a short story collection for a bigger publisher, Penguin."
