Reviews for THRESHOLD

Advance Praise for Threshold:
“Carol Bruneau brings you to the threshold of life in every one of her stories. She seeks out the breaking point of our
hearts and minds; our internal landscape, against the vibrant panorama of the world and our place in it. This is
personal. Halifax is her city, good and bad, and we are incredibly lucky to have such a knowledgeable, nuanced, and
endearing voice to bring it to us. She is a marvel. You don’t get better than this.”
–LESLEY CREWE, national bestselling author of Recipe for a Good Life

“In Threshold, Carol Bruneau makes visible those almost imperceptible moments when what one believes, or what is
expected, begins to unravel. Nothing, it turns out, is stable. The logic of time, of how things unfold, collides with the
truth—that everything will fall apart. In these keenly observant stories, beauty and fear comingle, but Bruneau’s
protagonists roll with life’s little tsunamis because, well, life simply goes on, no matter what.”
–SHANI MOOTOO, Giller Prize–shortlisted author of Polar Vortex

“These are stories of great power and insight. Bruneau illuminates her fictional world with a light so clear and bright
that in it we can see into the shadows of our own world, into the usually unuttered spaces between human action and
intent, between what we mean to each other and our usually inadequate attempts to articulate that meaning. And the
source of that light is Bruneau’s powerfully controlled language, never flashy or extravagant, every sentence perfect
unto its purpose. Threshold is an admirable and inspiring work.”
–LEO MCKAY JR., Giller Prize–shortlisted author of Like This and What Comes Echoing Back
