MORE INFORMATION

Nine linked and overlapping narratives in the voices of Liz and Katie, mother and daughter. We come to know Katie’s brother Michael, her feckless father, her half-brother Kent, in a family saga of tragedy and disappointment, of growing estrangement and isolation. As though mirroring this inner emotional landscape, the setting is a Canada of far distances, stunted forests, remote cabins, transitory accommodations. Both Katie and Liz must finally make choices about commitment, escape, desire and dignity. There are no easy answers in this austere tale, but a sense of the values of maturity and intelligence affirmed.
