Description

After the accidental death of a high school-aged friend, the Lansing family has split along fault lines previously hidden under a patina of suburban banality. Every family's got secrets, but for the Lansings those secrets end up propelling them away from the border town of Lloydminster to foreign shores, prison, and beyond.

Told via thirty-three flash fiction narratives, fractured like the psyches of its characters, Border Markers is a collection with keen edges and tough language. It's a slice of prairie noir that straddles the line between magic and gritty realism. Recalling Tania Hershman's The White Road and Other Stories, as well as Robert Oren Butler's Severance, Jenny Ferguson's debut is an essential collection of commonplace tragedies and the ghosts of failures past.
