The Journey Prize: The Best of Canada's New Writers

Author: Various
Publisher: Paperblank Book Co
Category: Contemporary Fiction, Short Story Books
Book Format: Paperback

For more than twenty-five years, The Journey Prize Stories has been Canada's most celebrated annual fiction anthology and a who's who of up-and-coming writers. With settings ranging from Toronto's Royal Conservatory of Music to a hospital ward in Thailand, from British Columbia's Burrard Inlet to St. John's Bowring Park, the stories in this collection represent the year's best short fiction by some of our most exciting new writers.

Among the stories this year: A woman's quest to trend on social media blinds her to her inability to connect with her own adult daughter. The delicate equilibrium maintained by a newly pregnant expat living in Israel is shattered when a missile lands in her backyard. An unusual guide to caring for an exotic pet highlights the many opportunities owners will have to learn valuable life lessons - beginning with the pet's death. The tender relationship between two musical prodigies is no match for the machinations of the adult world. After a woman returns to her parents' house to recuperate from a life-changing surgery, she discovers how difficult it is for others to accept who she has become. A terrible act of cruelty forces the tensions between two workers at a fish processing plant to spill out into the surrounding waters. When a former couple has a chance encounter on a B.C. ferry, old grievances and desires alike resurface with surprising results.
