Fidelity : stories by Michael Redhill( Book )

6 editions published between 2003 and 2010 in English and held by 222 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Fidelity probes the nature of temptation and desire, the ambivalence at the heart of our most intimate trusts, and the paradox of betrayal, which is that we cannot deceive others unless we have first deceived ourselves. In stories that range from the darkness of family silences to the hilarity of people caught in their own snares, Redhill shows how transgression often feels like something quite different - until it is too late." "The vulnerabilities of Redhill's characters are our own: a business-trip affair leaves a man humbled in ways he could not have anticipated; a young lover discovers she does not understand what connects people to each other; a traveling salesman, in trying to remain friends with his ex-wife, keeps breaking her heart; and a teenager's shocking sexuality inflicts wounds on her family."--BOOK JACKET

"Building Jerusalem takes place on New Year's Eve, 1899, in the Grange, one of the grandest houses in Toronto. Now the home of the celebrated writer Goldwyn Smith, it is to be the scene of a New Year's party for four auspicious guests: Karl Pearson, the German statistician, Augusta Stowe-Gullen, a medical doctor and suffragette, Silas rand, a missionary among the Nova Scotian Micmac Indians, and Adelaide Hoodless, a domestic scientist. But when their host is delayed, the four guests find themselves instead with his beautiful niece, Alice, who devises a series of songs and games to help her uncle's guests pass the time more easily. Little do they all know what suprises lie in wait as the new century creeps closer, and the stroke of midnight arrives with a terrible and beautiful revelation."--Jacket
Lake Nora Arms by Michael Redhill( Book )

Lake Nora Arms is in the tradition of one of the more intriguing topoi still left to us, the description of an imaginary place. The rhythms are incantatory, the slowed but run-on syntax of desire in dreams. --Northwest Review
