|Summary, etc.:||Finalist for the Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize. Winner of the City of Vancouver Book Award. Top 100 of 2017, Globe and Mail. -- The Globe and MailâHer characters possess an abundance of hard-luck stories, true, but she writes them as sometimes wrong and sometimes foolish and hence eminently human in their fallibility.â (The Georgia StraightâBaker is a skillful, sensitive writer with an uncanny gift for subtle, dark humor â¦ There is no judgment or condemnation in these stories, but a tender, deep savoring of the quirks that make us human.â (Foreword MagazineCarleigh Baker likes to make light in the dark. Whether plumbing family ties, the end of a marriage, or death itself, she never lets go of the witty, the ironic, and perhaps most notably, the awkward. Despite the title, the resolution in these stories isnât always tragic, but itâs often uncomfortable, unexpected, or just plain strange. Character digressions, bad decisions, and misconceptions abound.|
