Description


"The right story, at the right time, if you happen to be open to it ... can perhaps move you so far outside of yourself that you will not consider going back."

"Like meeting a stranger, much of the pleasure of a story is its unknown power," writes Best Canadian Stories 2020 guest editor Paige Cooper. "The right story, at the right time, if you happen to be open to it ... can perhaps move you so far outside of yourself that you will not consider going back." From Festival du Voyageur to the shores of Lake Erie, Tbilisi to Toronto, the Amisk River to a hotel-turned-hospital in the midst of a mysterious pandemic, this wide-ranging anthology brings together the real and the speculative, small towns and big cities, grief and humour, introducing readers to stories that startle us into new understanding--of ourselves and each other, the worlds we inhabit and the ones they help us to imagine.
