By Lisa Moore


Lisa Moore’s Open was a finalist for the 2002 Giller Prize and a national bestseller, and her work has also appeared in Canada’s most prestigious literary magazines. Her first collection of stories, Degrees of Nakedness, was also published by House of Anansi Press.

“The stories are full of nerve and verve. They brim with an irresistable mix of adrenaline, compassion and insight. They laugh and cry and rage. . . . Open is like this from start to finish: perceptive and wonderful.”
National Post

“Dazzling . . . daring . . . [Moore] has a genius for nailing the physical world on the page. One image after another is a feat of seeing, of waking up the senses.”
