In his debut story collection, Dana Mills writes with unsentimental clarity of contemporary rural life, of the roughneck world of back shifts and manual work, of dissolving prospects and of the overwhelming circumstances which one sometimes seems simply born to. Yet these stories are also shot through with the strange beauty and hope which such complicated entanglements with others and such conflicted relationships with the place we inhabit can engender. Dana Mills stories have appeared in Geist, subTerrain and The New Quarterly. His story Steaming for Godthb was shortlisted for the 2008 Journey Prize. He lives outside Wolfville, Nova Scotia.
