The Running Trees

By (author): Amber McMillan
9781773101699 Paperback, Trade English General Trade FICTION / Literary Sep 07, 2021
$19.95 CAD
Forthcoming 5 x 8 in | 240 gr 172 pages Goose Lane Editions

A striking original, deftly humorous collection of stories that considers the quest for truth: how we come to it or alternatively avoid it.

A fervently comic debut, The Running Trees leads readers into a series of conversations — through phonelines, acts in a play, and a rewound recording of a police interrogation — to reveal characters in fumbling bouts of brutality, reflection, isolation, and love.

The relationship between two siblings disintegrates after one asks the other for the pen; a professor and his former student get drinks years after a "romantic" encounter; a book club meets only to find that they have wildly different opinions about a new memoir about their town; and a long-haired feline contemplates existence and consciousness while his cohabitant licks his butthole.

Whimsical, unconventional, humorous, and always pitch-perfect, The Running Trees explores how we desperately try to communicate with each other amid the gaps in meaning we create.

  • A bevy of themes from violence to love and self-discovery.
  • A collection focused on what we say, how we say it, and what is left unsaid.
  • McMillan’s previous work has won the Penguin Random House Student Award for Fiction and been shortlisted for the Montreal International Poetry Award.

Amber McMillan is the author of the memoir The Woods: A Year on Protection Island and the poetry collection We Can’t Ever Do This Again. Her work has also appeared in PRISM international, Arc Poetry Magazine, and the Walrus. She lives in Fredericton.
