Dark stories about the people and ghosts that haunt rural Newfoundland. From the author of The Town That Forgot How to Breathe, a new collection of Newfoundland stories rich with legends, personal drama, humour and striking characters.
The thirteen, award-winning short stories in Shack feature Harvey's distinctive landscape of Cutland Junction, a place centred in the woods where characters live an inland way of life rarely witnessed in Newfoundland fiction.
Whether dealing with ghosts, loners, tragedy, or various elements of traditional lore, Harvey captures the people of Cutland Junction with passion, wit and care.
"A true talent and superior storyteller." — Books in Canada
His writing is so darkly, massively powerful that it will likely sweep all his potential competitors away with inexorable, tidal force.”
