Fatted Calf Blues

Winner of the 2010 Prince Edward Island Book Award for Fiction

In “Forgiveness,” an encounter with a hawk on a beach causes a suicidal man to reflect on forgiveness versus the weight of the stones in his pockets. In “New Glasgow Kiss,” an ex-con flies across the ocean in the hope of reconciling with his estranged daughter. In “The Bridge by Moonlight,” a woman mourns her dead son and struggles to understand the depth of her daughter-in-law’s grief.

Many of the stories in Fatted Calf Blues have appeared in literary journals including Front’N’Centre, the Windsor Review, The Dublin Quarterly, Filling Station, Pottersfield Portfolio and Grain Magazine.

Reviews

These are not stories linked by plot or character or place, but rather by something deeper, something more difficult to see; something down there, germinating.
