Nominee: 2015 Edge Hill Short Story Prize 2015 Frank O'Connor International Short Story Prize In settings as varied as industrial England, the Syrian desert, urban Morocco, rural "expat" Spain, Canada's West coast, and the China--Vietnam border, Royston Tester explores the very human struggles of people caught between cultures, social classes, lovers, family members, and sexualities. In "Dotty," a young Canadian woman on a work-stay program in a Cornish village tries to make sense of her affair with an Italian factory owner. In "Who Knows Where," two Canadian daughters grapple with their drug-addled mother whose lovemaking is haunted by the ghost of a stillborn baby. In "Face," a lovesick Chinese Canadian student lays down the law to his ambitious father over a dinner of monkey brains. In unforgettable, stripped-down prose, the stories in this book observe, with an unflinching eye, those who dare to take steps further.
