Manuela Dias Award Best Book Design 2017, Long-listed
Multi-award winning author Janet Trull has constructed an adept literary collection of short stories. In this, her astounding first book the author manages to bring together stories about Canadian “town” life. We are transported to locations that seem so familiar yet refreshingly original thanks to the author’s careful precision. These stories, both unforgettable and sometimes shocking, show the author’s fascination with seemingly normal life and what lies beneath once the surface has been stripped bare. The reader will recognize a new powerful voice in short fiction with Janet Trull.

Janet Trull is a freelance writer with a regular column in the Haliburton County Echo. Her personal essays, professional writing in the education field, and short stories have appeared in The Globe and Mail, Canadian Living Magazine, Prairie Fire, The New Quarterly and subTerrain Magazine, among others. She won the CBC Canada Writes challenge, Close Encounters with Science, in 2013 and was nominated for a Western Magazine Award in the short fiction category in 2014. Trull resides in Ancaster, Ontario were she continues to observe the seemingly small town trivialities. Hot Town and other stories is her debut short story collection.

By turns dark, quirky, powerful and uplifting, Janet Trull knows her terrain - emotional, social, and physical - and holds the reader close for a wild ride." - Terry Fallis, author of The best Laid plans, winner of the Stephen Leacock Memorial Medal "Janet Trull knows her terrain - emotional, social, and physical - and holds the reader close for a wild ride." --Terry Fallis, author, The Best Laid Plans"Vibrant and humanizing . . . a fearless first collection." --Van Kunder, author, The Woman I Can't See"Like Alice Munro, Trull writes about people you have known all your life." --Brad Smith, author, Crow's Landing"Trull's stories are poignant, concise and contain an essence that is reminiscent of an Alice Munro telling.
