Burrard Inlet, Paperback / softback Book

Burrard Inlet Paperback / softback

Description

Burrard Inlet is the body of water that divides Vancouver's North Shore from the rest of the Lower Mainland.

In this collection of award-winning stories, Tyler Keevil uses that rugged landscape as a backdrop for characters who are struggling against the elements, each other, and themselves.

A search-and-rescue volunteer looks for a missing snowboarder on Christmas Eve; two brothers retreat to the woods to shoot a film in memory of their dead friend; a reclusive forestry worker picks up a hitcher on his way down Mount Seymour; a young man finds a temporary haven on the ice barge where he works.

Written in a lean, muscular style, these are stories awash in blood and brine, and steeped in images of freedom and confinement.

Within that narrative framework, Burrard Inlet becomes more than a geographical location: it is a liminal space, a boundary and a barrier, a threshold to be crossed.
