Okay then, suffice to say that the stories in this collection were not written by the Elements of Style rule book

Islands are also secret places, where the unconscious grows conscious, where possibilities mushroom, where imagination never rests. Okay then, suffice to say that the stories in this collection were not written by the Elements of Style rule book. I see them as being fairly straightforward, although the writing can be somewhat textured or layered, what a friend once described as a thicket. If the gist of any particular effort here seems overly elusive, a reader might need to venture in like a beater and drive out the game.

Terry Griggs is a Canadian author Originally from Manitoulin Island, where her family operated a fishing lodge near Little Current, she studied English literature at the University of Western Ontario.

For the most part, the stories take place on an island locale, but range widely in subject, character, and design. A story like `Man With the Axe', which deals with creativity within the context of a testy brother-sister relationship, moves along in a fairly traditional way, while `Unfinished' is composed of a shattered narrative, a collage of grief and anger that reflects the distraction of its speaker. The stories told are familiar ones, of loss and generational conflict and obsession, though the angle taken is often idiosyncratic and the humour admittedly quirky. The odd ghost may slip in; a dog may be given his intellectual due. The author has allowed the actual and believable to flirt with the imagined, the fantastic. In places, she confesses, to have stretched the truth until its face resembles one you might encounter in a funhouse. But then, when you meet up with it, the truth isn't always a beautiful friend.
