Publisher Description:
Acclaimed throughout the world, and a best-selling writer in her native Canada, Barbara Gowdy now follows her breakthrough novel, Fallen Angels, with this remarkable collection of fiction - fiction that pushes us past the limits of convention into lives that are fantastic and heartbreakingly real. The subjects of We So Seldom Look on Love are people whose interests (and sometimes their very anatomy) make them total outsiders in human society; yet every story is written with such tenderness and empathy that there is never a moment of freak-show voyeurism. Through these remarkable pieces you are allowed fully to know another human being - a human being the likes of whom you may never be allowed to meet in real life. The author's talent is so sure and her insight so strong that she makes even the most unusual (or previously unimaginable) person become familiar, even intimate. Barbara Gowdy's stories make you feel in the presence of a staggering, wholly original talent who is writing something completely unlike any thing you've ever read before. If We So Seldom Look on Love is your first experience with Ms. Gowdy's work, you will utterly enjoy that wonderful feeling that so rarely happens: The discovery of a new voice and an extraordinary writer.
