The Taste of Hunger
"Raw and haunting, The Taste of Hunger takes the reader on a tumultuous journey from Ukraine through three generations of women on the Canadian prairies. Passionate and fiercely independent, each woman faces staggering obstacles as she struggles to define her life and find love on her own terms, burying secrets along the way. But not all secrets remain hidden, and when the darkest of all is unearthed -- a secret that implicates all three generations -- one woman and her husband are forced together to confront it in an alarming way. Beautifully written, tough, tender and unrelentingly human, this is a story that cannot be forgotten."
JOAN CRATE author of Black Apple
Praise for The Quick
"The marvel is that when [Scott's] subtle knowledge begins to ermerge, it feels as if you're finding it within yourself. The best of these stories shine probing light onto unresolved sorrows and bitterness, illumine what has been hidden, and help lay it to rest."
JIM BARTLEY The Globe and Mail
"Confident, subtle and visceral, The Quick should not be missed."
STEPHEN FINUCAN The Toronto Star
"These are what stories ought to be, and The Quick is cause for celebration."
