With a foreword by Margaret Atwood and an introduction by John Metcalf, This Time, That Place draws together twenty-four indelible works by Clark Blaise, a master of the short forms.
Praise for Clark Blaise
“If you want to understand something about what life was like in the restless, peripatetic, striving, anxiety-ridden simmering cultural soup of the late twentieth and early twenty-first centuries, read the stories of Clark Blaise. He’s the recording angel and the accuser, rolled into one. He’s the eye at the keyhole. He’s the ear at the door.”—Margaret Atwood
“Blaise is probably the greatest living Canadian writer most Canadians have never heard of.”—Quill & Quire
“Clark Blaise’s brilliantly imagined The Meagre Tarmac is a novel in short-story form, warmly intimate, startling in its quick jumps and revelations … with the rich and compelling detail for which [his] fiction is renowned … Remarkable.”
—Joyce Carol Oates
