Dog Attempts to Drown Man in Saskatoon

By Douglas Glover

Douglas Glover is at his versatile best in this new collection of short stories. Urbane, stylish, and slightly off-beat, the stories touch on the lives of a wide variety of human beings, whose only shared experience is the age in which they happen to meet: an abbot and a tramp sharing a seat on a Mexican train, a retarded farm boy and his incontinent dog, alienated singles in the American southwest, North Americans living—and dying—in an Indian ashram.

Glover is preoccupied with the complicated interweavings of good and evil, and he juggles language superbly.
Globe and Mail

Glover…seeks to combine a metaphysical approach and style with the nitty-gritty details of daily life. It works.
