GODMOTHER OF CAPE BRETON FICTION, and an essential figure in contemporary storytelling, Tessie Gillis has inspired Nova Scotia writers including Lynn Coady, Ann-Marie MacDonald, Alistair MacLeod, and Sheldon Currie. Her gripping stories dare to open the door to a realistic, sympathetic, and often dark portrait of rural Cape Bretonlife. The Innocent and Other Stories is generous selection inspired by Sheldon Currie's powerful and insightful opening essay- stories with exquisite focus on her vivid characters' hopes, fears, and failings. Gillis explores the pain and joy of the ties that bind, be they marital or community. No one before her wrote such stark or compassionate Cape Breton stories.
