Just Pretending

$18.95

Author: Lisa Bird-Wilson
ISBN: 9781550505467
Coteau Books

A debut short story collection from one of Canada’s most exciting new Indigenous voices. “In our family, it was Trish who was Going To Be Trouble; I was Such a Good Girl.” At times haunting, at times hilarious, Just Pretending explores the moments in life that send us down pathways predetermined and not-yet-forged. These are the liminal, defining moments that mark irreversible transitions of girl to mother, confinement to freedom, wife to murderer. They are the melodramatic car-crash moments of the outcomes both horrific and too fascinating to tear our eyes from. And they are the unnoticed, infinitely tiny moments, seemingly insignificant (even ridiculous) yet holding the power to alter, to transform, to make strange. What links these stories is a sense of characters working both with success and without, through action or reaction to separate reality from perception and to make these moments into their lives’ new truths.
