All the characters in this new collection of short stories are “letting down their hair,” allowing us to glimpse the extraordinary pains and passions that simmer beneath the surface of so-called ordinary men and women.

“Jancis M. Andrews writes the erotics of our daily lives. She writes the erotics of our daily conversations, of the table, of our clothing, of the weight of bodies that we dread and that makes us real. She writes the glow of desire that makes our lives endurable.”
— Robert Kroetsch

“Readers will climb into this world up the long, long braid of Ruby Anderson, a woman larger than life — as are all the characters in this book. They attract us with a mixture of ingredients that turns the commonest fictional dishes into the most rare. Their powers and personalities draw us in as willing guests, leaving us with memories — like starfish on our plates: crusty and colourful — mixtures of magic and horror.”
— George McWhirter
