About this product
- DescriptionJohnston skillfully follows the twentieth-century realist tradition of stripping stories down to details and everyday conversations that represent accurate snippets of life, and he explores perception - our ability to discern between conclusions and reality, between misplaced trust and mirror-pane truth. In his unique stories, Jeff and Beth clumsily discuss how they should be reacting to finding a dead man, who is t actually dead; a married couple doubt the existence of their eight-year-old son eugh to add their names to a school petition asking teachers and students to longer refer to the boy... except as a myth. <br/><br/>Johnston masterfully mixes such stories and perspectives with short vignettes told directly from ground zero of a surreal, apparitional landscape. Without philosophical discourse or interrogation, these stories playfully prompt us to question our own realities. The debut of one of western Canada's most thoughtful and original new authors, <i>A Day Does Not Go By</i> realistically depicts the confusion brought about by crumbling or extinguished relationships, roles and identities.
