"A long-awaited dazzling first collection of short fiction from one of Canada's most accomplished poets. These incandescent stories in Crow Jazz come from tree level, the corvid community, where sex and death are celebrated with mirth and compassion. They have clever crow energy, selecting beak-sized twitter-bits from life on Earth below, with an eye to the bigger picture. Highly inventive; children, families, crows and the old bewitch and astonish the imagination. Improvisation, syncopation; all the jazz words come into wordplay. "Mud Pies," "The Child City," "Darling Boy," "The Tea Party," "Lucy Laughed," "Elusive Beauty" and "Virginia Sat Down" are a few of the twenty-plus polished tales in Linda Roger's quirky and clever short fiction collection. A wild breath of fresh air for literary Canada."--Publisher.
