Format: Paperback
I came across this book completely by accident while browsing in a bookstore. The cover art was what initially grabbed me, and within seconds of opening the book to a random page, I was hooked. The story was about children engaged in one of those dress-up sumo wrestling matches during a block party. The writing was so evocative and compelling, full of humour and yet tinged with sadness, that I just had to buy the book. I read the book from cover to cover in two days. Each story was so innovative and exciting, the characters so unique and yet undeniably real, that reading this book was sweet relief from the usual cliched stuff that's out there. I can't wait to read this writer's next book!

Lee Henderson's collection of short stories is at times confusing, and at others, mesmerizing. And both aspects of his work are perfectly enjoyable. Mostly set in a surrealist urban landscape, the stories in the collection are varied, and thus maintain the attention of the reader throughout. The stories can sometimes be challenging to read, as the writing style complements well the surreal and disjointed settings of the stories. Henderson incorporates into his writing a unique sense of humour which is at often times sad. In fact, an air of melancholy hangs over most of the stories that form part of this collection. While the stories themselves are quite different from each other, the collection seems to explore the everyday bittersweet tragedies of our modern world. If you're interesting in picking up a book by a unique Canadian author, then I would recommend this one to you.

Why oh why did not this book receive more press? I would say this probably the best short story collection of the year to come out of Canada, and yes, that includes all the ones that were up for fancy awards and those that saturated the press. The stories are all seeped in real emotion (not that fake literary emotion), laugh-out-loud humour, deep sadness, and wicked strangeness. Lee Henderson is a diamond-cut treasure.
I loved loved loved this book. Rumour has it, he's writing a novel. How lucky are we?
