The Pink House and Other Stories

The Pink House and Other Stories delves into the lives of ordinary people who must contend with extraordinary situations: an elderly man is determined to renew his motorcycle license, a traumatized writer is unable to write, a woman is immobilized on a cold sidewalk after an accident, somehow Leonard Cohen is involved… Licia Canton’s narratives take the reader to Montreal settings such as the Bell Centre, a university library, a pink house in the east end, but also to a vineyard in Italy and a quiet street in Vienna. These stories deal with parenting and aging, trauma and depression, creativity and healing.
