Book Description
One has lost a child and paints her house blue, another has found a not-so-handy man she can’t get rid of; one perches in a tree and observes the neighbourhood, and yet another goes off into the woods with Jesus. These are some of the “wild pieces” that fill Catherine Hogan Safer’s remarkable new book, Wild Pieces – characters as wry and quirky and heart-wrenching as the short stories in which Safer brings them to life.

In language, taut and beautifully controlled, perfectly pitched and witty, Safer creates an array of unforgettable people. She finds the humble beauty in the life of a woman who spends each day knitting unmatched socks in the mall, and the pathos of a man who gathers small pieces of his father’s life. At once very funny and very sad, here is the dignity of lives lived slightly slant.

To enter these stories is to engage the wildness, the deep ache, the possibility of being alive.

About the Author
Catherine Safer was born and raised in Newfoundland: the Codroy Valley, Gander and St. John's. She has been scribbling since she could hold a pencil and prefers that activity to most things, even gardening. Bishop's Road, her first novel was nominated for the Amazon.ca/Books in Canada First Novel Award.
