These five linked stories confront a range of contemporary ills and bewilderments: incest, bulimia, past-life regression, mental illness and substance abuse. Most of the tales are set in the fictional resort town of Ruth, British Columbia, and some take place in the American West. At the heart of the matter is the primordial tug-of-war between the sexes.
