From the Publisher:
“Discover your next favourite writer…. There’s plenty of homegrown talent to admire here.” — Chatelaine

For more than two decades, The Journey Prize Stories has been Canada’s most celebrated annual fiction anthology, presenting the best stories published each year by some of our most exciting emerging writers.

In a vividly evoked story set in the offices of a Jewish newspaper in 1920s Cleveland, the unassuming writer behind a successful advice column discovers just how difficult it can be to navigate matters of the heart. A dwindling group of Chinese-Canadian lepers spend their final days fighting for survival and dreaming of escape after they are exiled to a remote island at the turn of the twentieth century. In what might prove to be the most important race of their careers, two competitive runners put everything on the line in the hopes of achieving the “miracle mile.” After the strange facts surrounding a girl’s disappearance from a small Japanese town decades earlier come to light, one of her former classmates recalls their charged but confusing last encounter. When an aging painter visits his estranged son, a gifted artist now gravely ill, old rivalries are reignited in a seductive story of art, love, desire, and betrayal.

The stories included in the anthology are contenders for the $10,000 Writers’ Trust of Canada/McClelland & Stewart Journey Prize. The winner will be announced in fall 2009.
