This is the perfect time for a re-issue of Bonnie Burnard’s Casino & Other Stories in the striking new PerennialCanada format. A Good House, Burnard’s 1999 novel, won the Giller Prize and became the number-one fiction bestseller. The subject of numerous media profiles and reader attention since the award, Burnard is on her way to becoming a household literary name.
Casino & Other Stories is Burnard’s second collection of short stories, also nominated for a Giller Prize and the winner of the Saskatchewan Best Book of the Year Award.Pulling us beneath the surface of convention into uncharted and often unpredictable emotional territory, Burnard makes the unremarkable seem remarkable, and the unspoken seem significant. These are stories of the frailty of love, the tension of family life, the uncertain moments in a young woman’s life. Wry and intelligent, humane and touching, Bonnie Burnard’s stories seduce and then surprise us with a sense of the familiar finally understood, and of passion recognized.
