"These young writers are angry, all ofthem, and they speak with the voice of our post-eighties hangover. Suddenl y we're not who we thought we were. The party is over and everybody knows it. Patricia Seaman works as a waitress in Toronto and writes in short, lapidary sentences, with a strong sense of outrage, about women. Robert Majzels, a Jew, lives in Montreal and writes about a different kind of outrage, the death-camps, ruled as they were by the whip and the boot. Ellen McKeough is a doctor and uses the starkest of medical imagery to reveal the pain anddesire and longing that lie behind the slick surfaces of contemporary life . Watch for these names. They won't go away." -- from back cover. Includes the following stories: Ellen McKeough's "What Celia Wants", "Mildew On My Mind', and "Dying By The Rules", Robert Majzel's "A Still Warm Ground", Mariang Makiling", and "Boys Catch The Girls", and Patricia Seaman's "Facts About Shriners", "The Sly, The Slick, The Wicked", and "Don't Call Me Honey". Very good. Due to the small size of this book, shipping costs should be cheaper than quoted. 20.00
