Carnival Glass, Bonnie Dunlop’s new fiction collection, is an examination of the infirmity of human relationships — marriages, brotherhood, friendships, parent–child relations hindered by negligence and death — and how strange providence can send a sane and settled person entirely off the rails. These stories honour how we love and take care of each other, and how, inevitably, we fail each other too.

Dunlop’s settings — dusty ranches, near–ghost towns of Southwest Saskatchewan, infinite beaches of Tofino, BC, small prairie cities in the 60s and exotic locales of contemporary Mexico— are built with a quiet grace and familiarity and remain integral to her stories. It is with such detail that the assured writing in Carnival Glass situates award–winning author Bonnie Dunlop as a contending voice for women’s fiction.
