These fourteen stories, interconnected and set in the Toronto punk scene of the 1980s, are startling in the humour and grace they bring to a subculture too often presented in the media as one-dimensional and anti-social. In a language both passionate and wryly self-aware, Jennifer Duncan creates a world that is totally convincing in its detail and its rich humanity.Critical CommentiLetter-perfect, edgy chronicles of life in the Gen-X zone. Duncan writes with precision, humour, and confidence.

Delightful ...io Sarah Sheard, author of The Swing Era and The HypnotistiThese nervy wired stories fibrillate with the energy of their raw inquiry into the trippy fastdance of contemporary identities adrift and amok in downtown T.O. and environs- at this level, the stories revel in a stark new naturalism sharply attuned to a stark new milieu.

But these are stories that also preen, first, in language, at once swooning through their speakersi poetic riffs and disowning them with an elaborate knowing shrug.io Canadian LiteratureiThis is a strong womanis voice, with no intention at all of hiding the obstacles set in her charactersi paths by other peopleis exploitation, perceptions, and demands.io The Link, 2000
