Carnival Glass

ISBN: 978-1-897235-46-1

Bonnie Dunlop’s new fiction collection, is an examination of the infirmity of marriages, brotherhood, friendships, parent-child relations hindered by negligence and altered by death, and where presumption is crushed by revelation — an eccentric old cowboy looks to avoid industrial pollution, a newly widowed woman attempts to untangle the secrets of her conventional marriage, a successful yet guilt-ridden man returns to his hometown for his brother’s funeral, a motherless teenage girl reconstructs her life, and a young woman struggles with the final term of her first pregnancy. All reach a precise moment when choice dictates to their unwilling spirits and when transformation begins its painful journey.
It is with such controlled transcendence that Dunlop’s characters live and that the assured writing in Carnival Glass situates award-winning author Bonnie Dunlop as a contending voice for Canadian women’s fiction.
