Cover art by Prudence Heward, in colour on front, repeated in b&w monochrome inside. "These stories all concern themselves with decisive moments in time, those moments when we choose, condemn, make amends, blunder, forgive. The way a person reacts at such times says much about his character. Too much recent Canadian fiction is merely clever, implying that this is life and there's nothing much wecan do about it. If most of these stories are hopeful, it's not because th ey imply that nothing can or should be done. On the contrary, they imply that we must make choices and the choices we make are of profound moral consequence. If we can t see tnat, we've become not only blind but also dangerous to others." (from the back cover). Contents : Hodzik's of Hollywood; Drainage; Hale-Bopp Calling Vienna; Give the Dull Boy a Chance; To Esker Bay for Viking Brides; Mrs. Royalty; Early Easter; The Girl from the Butts; The New Road; End of Play.
