In her first collection of short fiction, Giangrande explores the lives of people who inhabit the broken terrain of the late twentieth century. A man saves memory from the blur of media events by finding a tool more potent than television…an Ontario farmer reaps a strange harvest in the garden of a Lebanese exile…a photographer uses her creative eye to unravel the mystery of a missing friend…an antiwar march pushes a woman into the life of her beloved twin destroyed by Vietnam…Faced with the disappearance of homeland, memory and innocence, these short stories powerfully explore interpretive material for life’s dance.
