About the Book

A cityscape, a city of people, and their stories-—stories which build piece by piece into a larger, but not altogether complete picture. And at the epicentre of it all is a park, a shared space, a meeting place. Behind the stories the observant eye, tracking the action, listening: a figure, sometimes in shadow, sometimes at the centre of attention, telling and retelling of the lives, hopes and fears within this small community. These are stories of passion: the passion of place, the passion of everyday routine and experience, and the electric current of sexual desire and opportunity running through the lives of the people who call this place home. Terri-nn White’s first collection of stories brings these various elements into play, creating a rich and lively montage of inner city life; all of which is imaginatively echoed and responded to by the images of Alison Rowley.
