The Devil Out There comprises five short stories and two long ones, most of them interconnected, which take place in the 60s and early 70s. They are set variously on a tidal beach, in an island apartment in the rain, a mountain valley choked with redwoods, the old-fashioned parlour of a Montreal boarding house, the heat of summer in Boston when JFK comes to town, and the smoky bars and haute cuisine restaurants of Montreal. A man is drawn equally to physical violence and theories of light and particle dimension; a 19-year-old leaves her small-town husband in search of sexual adventure and the glamour of the city; a sister and brother cope with the mine field of their past.

Classically crafted, devoid of sentimentality and alive with potent observation and tantalizing darkness, these are stories to read and read again.
