100 Mile Reading: Hot Town

hot townHot Town and Other Stories by Janet Trull

In Hot Town and Other Stories, Janet Trull gives readers an unvarnished look at life in small towns through short stories. Each story provides a vignette of small town life, while examining something deeper – whether it’s the unintended consequences of the decisions we make, the prejudices that narrow our view of the world, how the history of generations still haunt us in the present, and how even though we think we know one another, we might really not know one another at all. Hot Town and Other Stories follows in the tradition of Alice Munro, bringing a bit of Central Ontario to Southern Ontario Gothic.

Hot Town and Other Stories by Janet Trull is available to reserve at the Haliburton County Public Library.
