Winner of the 1991 QSPELL Fiction Prize, these carefully crafted fictions expose the damaged lives of an exotic assortment of characters. All is not as it seems to be—the face these characters show is not the only face one sees. Finely controlled as they are, these stories are expressions of desperation, and though apparently cool and dispassionate, they reverberate with emotional tension.
