"Blasted is a story of Ruby Jones: irreverent, exuberant, and troubled. Lurching between love affairs and cities, she is haunted by mysteries that surround her father and the generations before him. Steeped in Newfoundland folklore, Blasted mines a rich vein of experience, layering the mundane and the magical, and evoking the forces that inhabit the land. The narrative shifts between generations and geographies, between contemporary life and stories as old as the hill that looms over Ruby’s birthplace."--Inside front flap.

Set in Toronto and St. John's I would call this story NFLD mythology.
