Find out what's happening, in this twelfth edition of Canada's most celebrated anthology of new writers. Among the stories: Amway recruiters, garage sales, manicured lawns, and other features of suburban life are dispassionately observed by an abandoned yak. A financial analyst with the uncanny ability to read numbers is confronted with a moral dilemma when he is expected to exploit his talent to manipulate a client at the racetrack. When a young girl is sent for by her long-absent father, she is awakened to certain harsh realities by her step-mother, in a fascinating tale set in a nineteenth-century Russian shtetl. The undercurrents that run beneath a surgeon's life of perfect calm begin to surface when he finds himself believing he can communicate with a comatose patient. In a spellbinding journey through the intricate world of collecting, an antique dealer learns something new about the nature of desire when she receives an unexpected gift. The winner of the $10,000 Journey prize for the year 2000 was Timothy Taylor for "Doves of Townsend."
