A Quill & Quire Book of the Year

Ten years after her stunning debut, Shauna Singh Baldwin returns to Goose Lane with an outstanding new collection of ten stories.

"The View from the Mountain" introduces Wilson Gonzales, who makes friends with his new American boss, the aptly named Ted Grand.

Each containing an entire world, these stories are marked by indelible images and unforgettable turns of phrase — hallmarks of Baldwin's fictional world."Engaging and enlightening, international in scope, Baldwin's wonderful eye for detail and her clear, elegant prose bring the daily realities of these estranged characters to life — daily realities that are often profoundly affected by horrific events such as Chernobyl and 9/11. A wonderful collection." — Sandra Gulland, author of The Josephine B. Trilogy
