K.D. Miller: Late Breaking
Inspired by the paintings of Alex Colville, Late Breaking offers a chilling portrait of a small and aging community. The linked stories explore the vulnerability of the elder heart and prove that love and sex and heartbreak are not only the domain of the young. Each character appears in at least two stories, in a greater or lesser role, the most common being a ghost who “haunts” the book throughout. Death is a constant, in both peaceful and violent forms. Together, the stories crystallize into something more than a novel, and confirm its author as one of the country’s best.
Finalist for the 2019 Governor-General’s Literary Award for Fiction.
