Summary (From the publisher):

In A BOLT OF WHITE CLOTH Leon Rooke brings together an extraordinary array of characters in scenes and circumstances which flow easily back and forth from wild hilarity to deeply felt sorrow. The distance between dream and reality is often blurred in these finely tuned, beautifully written stories. And, as in past collections, Rooke's characters and stories are firmly rooted in the apparently common and everyday events of the everyman in all of us. When the exceptional does occur, Rooke has the uncanny ability to make it seem the most natural thing in the world.
