The Girl on the Escalator

Finished December 10
The Girl on the Escalator by Jim Nason
This collection of short stories involve a variety of characters, but they have in common surprising decisions, actions, and situations. From a successful advertising executive who quits her job to be a graffiti artist to the gay man who falls for a woman, the stories evoke emotions and interest.
Set in and around Toronto, the locations were true to life and reflected life in the city. Here, it is the characters who make the story and the strong portrayals provide surprising depth for short stories.
