Butterfly Tongue

The scene is set in 1972, the year prohibition was repealed (yes, 1972!) in the small, working-class city of Owen Sound—a town that has seen better days but which is still full of rough-around-the-edges dynamism. We follow our hapless narrator as he licks his wounds after a doomed love with a truly remarkable woman burdened with an angel’s wings. The story is at once wrenching yet full of dry humour, as the tough narrator's defences get broken down and his hard-boiled comments get replaced by sublime pathos.
