about

Close to Spider Man marks the debut of an exciting new literary talent: a collection of connected stories whose female narrators seek out lives for themselves amidst the lonely, breathtaking landscape of the Yukon. The young people in Ivan Coyote''s deeply personal stories are looking to make a break from their circumstances, but the North is in their bones: so is their connections to family, friends, and acquaintances.

Startling in their intimacy, the stories in Close to Spider Man make up a moving scrapbook of what it''s like to be young and queer in the North, journeys imbued with the colours of a prescient sexuality and an honest heart.

Runner-up, Danuta Gleed Award for Short-Fiction
