Richard Cumyn's "The Young in their Country and Other Stories"

Richard Cumyn’s most recent fiction collection, The Young in their Country and Other Stories, contains two stories that were first published in The Fiddlehead: “In the Wash” (no. 232 summer 2007) and “The Goddess Throws Down” (no. 240 summer 2009)

Join Richard when he reads from The Young in their Country and Other Stories at the UNB Reading Series on Thursday Feb. 10, at 8pm in the Alumni Memorial Lounge

Steven Heighton notes that Richard Cumyn is: "one of our finest story writers: exacting, surprising, deftly attuned both to language and to character, tough-minded and large-hearted at the same time — often within the same sentence."
