Stranger Things Have Happened - Carmelita McGrath Stranger Things Have Happened
Carmelita McGrath

Price: CDN$15.95
Book Description
Carmelita McGrath's second collection of fiction opens with a visitation by an angel and closes with the attainment of a job, the latter occurrence in its own way as much a miracle as the first. In the intervening pages, the everyday and the odd intertwine in the lives of a cast of memorable narrators, from a six-year-old girl struggling to understand the destructive undercurrents of her family to a woman in night school trying to find a lost daughter through a series of writing exercises.

Traveling from outport to city and to the spaces inhabited by ghosts, these fourteen stories evoke specificity of time and place, from a Newfoundland outport in the 1930s to contemporary St. John's. As keenly imagined as the physical world are those other territories, the private spaces in the heart and mind where dreams are nurtured in secrecy, love blooms and dies and waits through dormancy, and time serves as arbiter between longing and disappointment.

Crafted,with care, told by distinctive voices, these stories bring to life the world of girls and women who come to know that "redenip- tion is something we reach for, but don't get. A little grace, now, that's a different matter. . ."
