Walking the dog may be one of life's more mundane activities, but in Irena Karafilly's fictional world, the ordinary only serves to illuminate large universal concerns. Set in various parts of the world, the stories in this compelling collection vividly dissect the intricate relations between characters of all ages as they grapple for answers to life's cruelties and the shifting dynamics of family life. There are stories about childhood, adolescence, old age; about marriage, parenthood, sibling rivalry, and more. It is Karafilly's gift to contemplate moral dilemmas with compassion and honesty, and an unflinching eye for the complex motivations of the human heart.

Irena Karafilly is an award-winning Montreal writer, poet, and aphorist. She is the author of several acclaimed books and of numerous stories, poems, and articles, published in both literary and consumer magazines, as well as in various North American newspapers, including the New York Times and the International Herald Tribune. Her short stories have been anthologized and/or broadcast, winning literary prizes such as the National Magazine Award and the CBC Literary Award. For more information, please visit
