Synopsis:

A young father with a drinking problem and no job is prevented from seeing his daughter by a restraining order. But when her mother’s postcards are no longer enough, he boards a train, longing to meet his child.

The thirteen stories in Andrew Pyper’s intense and artful short-story collection, Kiss Me, deal with the issues, sensibilities and intangible estrangements of contemporary youth. But there are no neat and tidy coming-of-age passages here: these are narratives about reaching out—and often failing to touch—one another in a time of both privilege and fracture.
