    Om Flesh and Blood

    From the author of the best-selling, Giller-nominated River Thieves comes a heartbreaking and masterful collection of short fiction. With uncommon elegance and compassion, Michael Crummey has created a community of exiles, characters estranged from their home, from their families or, just as often, from themselves. Set largely in the small Newfoundland mining town of Black Rock, but straying as far west as Vancouver and as far east as China, these stories are subtle, stark portrayals of people alternately looking for or trying desperately to escape their place in the world.A young boy confuses love and allegiance, then stumbles into the complexities of adulthood; a brother and sister fall in love with the same woman; a frustrated wife protests her husbands neglect by going on strike with the miners union; a lovers drug habit reunites a woman with the sister she has lost.Anchor Books is proud to publish an expanded edition of Michael Crummeys brilliant collection Flesh and Blood, which includes three original stories written just for this edition. Graceful, affecting, and generous of spirit, these stories are unforgettable.
