Helen Mourre

Mourre’s short stories are marked with the wry awareness of authentic prairie people — their bluntness, honesty and dishevelled truths. There is in each of them a universality that is both mythical and ordinary, delivered in a straight-ahead dramatic telling. Mourre’s writing weaves its prairie spells as it did in her first collection Landlocked.

Set against extended metaphors of seeding, harvesting, seasonal migration, and the implacable forces of nature, Helen Mourre’s fiction quietly takes its place in the front row of western Canadian realism.

Helen Mourre

Whatever it has taken to shape the prairie and its rhythm has also shaped and captured its people. Helen Mourre’s stories reveal these people in this place with subtle grace and dignity. The present is not merely an echo of the past, it is amplified by it. Yet there is no brashness here — the prairie will not tolerate it. There is only a wry awareness — authentic and honest.
