Whether it’s a middle-aged man travelling to Mexico in search of a troubled sister or a thirty-something restaurant manager trying desperately to hold her life together, this stunning debut collection of interconnected stories unerringly charts the emotional journeys of a wonderful cast of characters, none more charming, interesting or endearing than the woman who lends her name to its title. Filled with compassion, humour and eloquence, A Clap for Cadence signals the arrival of a talented young writer of uncommon dexterity and maturity of voice, whose wholly original creations are as real and as recognizable as ourselves.
R.W. Dunlop was born in 1983 in Sapporo, Japan, and in 1991 her family moved to Calgary, Canada where they continue to live and work. Dunlop has studied literature, art and design in Toronto, London, and Milan.
