The Truth About LoveBook - 2001
A breathtaking collection of short stories from one of Canada's most talented young writers. The most accomplished writer of a generation is back with passion. In five books Patrick Roscoe has masterfully explored the complex landscapes of the heart. With greater intensity and new power, The Truth About Love continues his investigation into how we struggle to live with loss and longing. Lyrical and brutal, terrifying and tender, haunting and wise, this is fiction that ranges with stunning virtuosity across time and space. Blood spilled in a Saskatchewan winter. A box of secrets buried in the hills above a small British Columbia town. A murdered child in the snow, a tattoo pricked upon yearning skin. A dancer sways through narcotic Spanish nights, a lover's knife slices through the dark. The pieces of this fictional puzzle finally fit together, in all their dark beauty, to create a vision that holds the elusive truth about love. (2001)
