All the Shining People

Paperback

Price: $17.99

Overview

Twelve exquisitely written stories depicting the search for human connection and the attempt to fit in far from home.

All the Shining People explores migration, diaspora, and belonging within Toronto’s Jewish South African community, as individuals come to terms with the oppressive hierarchies that separate, and the connections that bind. Seeking a place to belong, the book’s characters — including a life-drawing model searching the streets for her lover; a woman confronting secrets from her past in the new South Africa; and a man grappling with the legacy of his father, a former political prisoner — crave authentic relationships that replicate the lost feeling of home. With its focus on family, culture, and identity, All the Shining People captures the experiences of immigrants and outsiders with honesty, subtlety, and deep sympathy.

Reviews

In a dozen loosely connected short stories, [Kathy Friedman] weaves a colourful and rich tapestry of the community – and does so masterfully ... While the individual tales shine on their own, each is enriched by the ones that follow, forming a beautiful constellation of work.
