This fast-paced suite of short fiction is highlighted by the contemporary vella After Guillaume. In the vella, age and new-felt urges drive William into a conflict with his past. It was the '60s and '70s, there were women and men, and the consequences are fraught. As it moves through the decades, this Oedipal tale has a shocking outcome.
Walter Bruno has recently published a memoir, Notes from the Gate: a remembrance of Mavis Gallant (paperback). Other books include After Guillaume: Short Fiction, and the poetry collections Cat Walk and Long Shot Odyssey, available in both formats.
