Description: Sheila Peters makes her impressive fiction debut with a collection of loosely linked stories whose characters are plain, ordinary men and women who have seemingly everyday experiences that glimmer with the extraordinary. Her spare, stripped-down prose, leavened with sly humor and a gift for poetic resonance, reminds one of the work of Alice Munro.

Peters creates people who often feel out of sync with the spiritual, emotional and physical environments they find themselves in. Two old people on a farm try to comprehend the inevitable fate befalling them, all the while contemplating the strange goings-on of neighbors. A young woman on the lam from Texas finds herself beached on the Queen Charlotte Islands on her way to Alaska. A punked-up girl accompanies a crusty grandmother on a tense hunting trek in the drizzly woods. Their universe is our universe, but with a twist that makes it refreshingly new and decidedly different.
