Andrew Pyper earned recognition and critical acclaim with Lost Girls. In Kiss Me, his debut collection, he gives us stories of a twenty-something generation, of growing up in the small towns and cities of Canada, and of confronting the universal dilemmas of life in the real world. No tidy coming-of-age collection, Kiss Me is populated with characters who struggle to reach out—sometimes painfully, sometimes comically, and not always successfully—to make sense of their seemingly fractured condition in an equally disaffected universe. First love, first lust, first high, first terrible moment of awareness that in a single moment, life can change forever—this is shimmering, profound writing that moves from subtly detailed moments of awakening to brutal, often shattering epiphanies.
