Overview

In Racket, editor and acclaimed fiction writer Lisa Moore introduces us to ten of the most exciting new writers currently at work in Newfoundland. Featuring a diverse range of previously unpublished short stories, this unique anthology showcases a generation of voices soon to emerge as the next great wave of Newfoundland writers.

Lisa Moore

Three-time nominee for the Scotiabank Giller Prize (2002, 2005 and 2013), winner of the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize and long listed for the Man Booker Prize, Lisa Moore’s intimacy with her native city and province has made her, along with Wayne Johnston and Michael Winter, one of Newfoundland’s (and Canada’s) most important contemporary writers.

Reviews

“Racket of riotous and remarkable voices. ” “Be warned, reader, these stories aren’t a fun jaunt into short fiction. They will challenge and tease you, and the characters will stick with you long past the last page. ”

- Kim Hart Macneill, Atlantic Books Today

"With a cover design modelled after the Purity Hard Bread label, “Racket” promises to be a satisfying package. There are unifying themes — love, family — but these are handled with rich diversity. ”

The Telegram

"Matthew Lewis, who kicks off [Racket], is a stylist: he wields words in a way you’ve never read, and it marks him not as an exciting new voice, but one of the most exciting writers in town, period. ”
