Strays, Ed Kavanagh’s first work of fiction since the award-winning novel The Confessions of Nipper Mooney, features ten memorable stories that explore the lives of those who somehow find themselves adrift. The cast of characters ranges from the very young to the very old. In “The Red Merc” a boy learns deep truths about his often absent father; in “Wind” a Newfoundland student in a big Canadian city struggles with issues of identity; and in “The Strayaway Child” a ninety-year-old woman recalls her childhood during the Great Depression when she was a “sad, silent little nobody.”Affection, humorous, and finely crafted, Strays speaks, ultimately, to our desire to belong.
