The Left-Handed Dinner Party and Other Stories

Secrets aren't good for families. — from "Big Luck Island"In The Left-Handed Dinner Party and Other Stories—a collection of new, delightful, distinctive short stories—everyone is missing something or someone; every family is riven by secrets and absences. From "The Remedy," a tale of revenge and justice, to "The Smart Sisters," a story of tricky family dynamics, Coulter's narratives portray relationships, loss, and what we learn in the aftermath of death. Ghosts, echoes, memories, regrets...Coulter's characters are haunted in many ways. With style and sweep that hints at Lynn Coady and Alice Munro, Myrl Coulter is a strong, fresh voice in contemporary Canadian fiction.
