People Who Disappear

People Who Disappear is the haunting debut book of short fiction from one of Canada's brightest literary up-and-comers, Alex Leslie. In polished, poetic prose Leslie intelligently explores the notion of disappearance and the anxieties associated with things gone missing—family, friendship, sanity, love.
