"Everyone lives on Brunswick Avenue sooner orlater." So begins Fables of Brunswick Avenue,Katherine Govier’s first collection of short stories, which found her anaudience that has expanded with each subsequent book.

The 16 stories in this collection capture turning points in thelives of characters who have migrated to the city, and ended up—as everyoneinevitably does—on Brunswick Avenue. A restaurateur in "The Garden"collects look-alike waitresses but discovers that, as one, they resist hisadvances. In "Responding to Pain," a woman rescues a suicidal friend,only to realize that she is angry enough to kill her. And in "BrunswickAvenue," a writer comes to understand that her neighbourhood isprovisional, and in its draft stages, like her life. Infused with Govier’smagical ability to conjure time and place, Fables of Brunswick Avenue isabout starting out, and starting over.
