Overview

From the streets of Danang, Vietnam, where a boy falls in with a young American missionary, to fishermen lost off the islands of Honduras, to the Canadian prairies, where a teenage boy's infatuation reveals his naivete and an aging rancher finds himself smitten, the short stories in Here the Dark explore the spaces between doubt and belief, evil and good, obscurity and light. Following men and boys bewildered by their circumstances and swayed by desire, surprised by love and by their capacity for both tenderness and violence, and featuring a novella about a young woman who rejects the laws of her cloistered Mennonite community, Scotiabank Giller Prize-winner David Bergen's latest deftly renders complex moral ambiguities and asks what it means to be lost--and how we might be found.

Reviews

Bergen's prose is always tight and clear, but in his novella it takes on an eerie quality; the story is both immediate and dreamlike. -- Quill & Quire magazine Bergen's style is taut, devoid of overblown 'writerly' prose...He brings to mind Ernest Hemingway... A masterclass in fine writing. -- Toronto Star Gripping...Here the Dark highlight[s] the nuance in every decision; more often than not, no 'right' choice is offered. It's love not faith that saves. -- Winnipeg Free Press
