Book Description
What is Invisible , a rich and evocative new collection of short stories, recreates time and place with startling viviidness. Downtown St. John's in the 1970s, an outport garden party in the 1920s, a contemporary Florida poolside- there are not backdrops but part of the living texture of the fiction.

Within these sumptuously rendered environments, a classic struggle plays itself out - the conflict between ordinary people and the extraordinary complexities of their lives. An elderly woman strives to understand her existence after cancer threatens to snatch it away. A teenaged babysitter really, really wants nice things. A cop throws his job on the line for a little adoration.

Watch these characters at the point of change, in the middle of choices about what they see ( or think they see), about what is invisible to them. This is a striking first book for Newfoundland writer Beth Ryan.
