The characters in these thirteen stories exist on the edge of danger, where landscapes melt into dreamscapes and every house is haunted. A drug dealer's girlfriend signs up for the first manned mission to Mars. A girl falls in love with a man who wants to turn her into a bird. A teenage girl and her best friend test their relationship by breaking into suburban houses. A wife finds a gaping hole in the floor of the home she shares with her husband, a hole that only she can see. Full of longing and strange humor, these subtle, complex stories--about the love between a man and his pet crow, an alcoholic and his AA sponsor, a mute migrant and a newspaper reporter--show how love ties us to one another and to the world.

This punchy little collection of off-beat stories provided an enjoyable escape. It's always fun to read collection set in places I recognize, in this case, the Lower Mainland (Vancouver BC and the surrounding region).

the premise of each story is fascinating and perhaps you will find the execution captivating. I wanted to, really wanted to, but did not.
