More Description

Alarming - edgy, often disturbing, and superbly written - these short stories illuminate the dark, troubled heart of human existence.
A young girl escapes the bonds of her abusive adopted mother. A woman does not leave her rotting apartment for over a month. A widower passes through his wife's garden for the first time. A cosmetician slowly destroys her family. Dark and compelling, "Drying the Bones" deftly explores the emotional lives of its characters with electrifying concision.
These stories need not rely on a trend or a label for their success: startling and cleverly crafted, they distinguish Sonik as one of Canada's finest up-and-coming writers in any category. She brandishes a unique ability to handle a surprisingly broad range of characters and settings, all with the same power to send shivers up your spine.
