Lemm’s hard-living characters follow paths through relationships with family, friends, and lovers, discovering and crossing their limits as they try to find their way in the world. A man takes a chance on love after he encounters an exotic opera singer on an airplane. Two brothers face their own ghosts as they come to terms with their father’s death. A young man tries to live with his friends’ idea of justice after one of them crosses the line. The stories resonate long after the pages are closed, offering a fresh voice from one of Atlantic Canada’s finest poets.
