From the Canadian Short Story Library, twelve stories from Desmond
Pacey, a major figure in Canadian Literature and criticism. The
twelve stories are typical of Pacey's story-telling technique and
what emerges from them is a distinctive, even powerful optimism,
charity, tolerance and deep understanding of human nature. The
sombre side of life is honestly portrayed and juxtaposed against
the importance of love as a unifying force. These stories,
presented in a simple straightforward manner, reveal man as he is:
fragile, vulnerable, capable of crude, selfish and irrational
behaviour, subject to defeat and despair; but also, heroic,
enlightened, capable of strength, wisdom, hope and joy.
