The stories in Night Watch, a new collection from Susan Zettell, delve deep into dark waters. Zettell looks unflinchingly at life's bountiful sorrows: the loss felt by abandoned children, the sudden intrusion of sickness or death, the fierce love suffered by the mother of a troubled child, the journey away from home and the shining, difficult path of return.

Zettell's handling of her characters makes us feel as if this is not fiction at all, but real life floating on the page. Her characters take us with them as they break through to light, and air, and sometimes laughter, finding their obstacles suddenly fluid as water, thin as a pane of glass, and changeable as a heart.

Susan Zettell was born and raised in Kitcher, Ontario. She has also lived in Cambridge, Vancouver, Cape Breton, and Halifax and now resides in Ottawa. She is a graduate of Dalhousie and Carleton Universities. A number of the stories in Night Watch have been previously published in The Fiddlehead, The Pottersfield Portfolio...
