Catriona Wright

Difficult People
978-0-88971-339-0, $19.95, Paperback, Nightwood Editions
Pub date: October, 2018

Notable Reviews

Difficult People is Toronto writer Catriona Wright’s bombastic fictional debut. … Each story in this brilliant collection reverberates with raw disappointment and longing as the broken characters angrily confront, or slickly deny, their thwarted ambitions and obvious personal limitations. … Difficult People is a tour de force — there isn’t a single flaw in this airtight collection populated by a modern cast of misfit characters. … While these characters are certainly Difficult People, in Wright’s capable hands they shift imperceptibly from snarky underachievers to unsung heroes. This ambitious collection reinforces the dynamic state of the short story. Well done, Catriona Wright — you have won this difficult reader’s admiration.”
~ Patricia Dawn Robertson, The Winnipeg Free Press

Review in subTerrain, Issue #80

Notable Reviews

“A fine poet, with several books and awards under her belt, Kane knows how to put words to work. Some of her descriptions of scenery or wildlife could stand as small poems on their own. … A memoir? To be sure, but it’s also much more — a paean to the outdoors, a plea for the environment, a chronicle of several layers of healing. Heck, it’s even a darn good love story.”
- Heidi Greco, subTerrain
