Casino & Other Stories is Burnard’s second collection of short stories, nominated for a Giller Prize and the winner of the Saskatchewan Best Book of the Year Award. Pulling us beneath the surface of convention into uncharted and often unpredictable emotional territory, Burnard makes the unremarkable seem remarkable, and the unspoken seem significant. These are stories of the frailty of love, the tension of family life, the uncertain moments in a young woman’s life. Wry and intelligent, humane and touching, Bonnie Burnard’s stories seduce and then surprise us with a sense of the familiar finally understood, and of passion recognized.
