      After picking this up from the book graveyard in my grandmother's apartment complex lobby I left it on a shelf and forgot about it. I must confess that after I did read it I found it gritty and sometimes shocking. I was not expecting this quality from someone from Newfoundland and living in New Brunswick. This short collection will linger longer than anticipated.
