This was the first book I had read by Canada's only Nobel laureate in literature, but it won't be the last. It's a collection of short stories, each one of them beautiful in its own way. The title story and the one about the man who accidentally killed his own child are the ones that particularly linger with me; but they are brilliant and evocative slices of ordinary life, expressed in an understated but effective tone, usually showing rather than telling. Strongly recommended.
