(From the publisher):
The six stories and a novella in What's Left of Us
are set in London, Dublin, Vancouver and southern Ontario, and explore love, loss and family relations with razor-sharp wit, insightful warmth and unflinching honesty. In the stories we meet characters like Sophie, who believes she has a divine calling to work at Dublin's XXX-rated cinema, and Nora, whose marriage to a carpenter is in such a state of disrepair that she commits a very public act of rebellion. The novella introduces Emma, a pregnant and unwed young woman in London, England, who spends the month before her child's burth searching for her family's mysterious origins. Emma is a hip, wry, postmodern heroine, equally at home with domestic detail and philosophical musing.
