The Devil Out There by Julie Keith
Winner of The Hugh MacLennan Prize for Fiction in 2000
The Devil Out There is a collection of seven interconnected stories that take place in the ’60s and early ’70s in various settings: a tidal beach; an island apartment in the rain; a mountain valley choked with redwoods; the old-fashioned parlour of a Montreal boarding house; the heat of a Boston summer when JFK comes to town; and the smoky bars and haute cuisine restaurants of Montreal. Classically crafted, devoid of sentimentality and alive with potent observations and tantalizing darkness, these are stories to read and read again.
