9780889842649: The Rule of Last Clear Chance

Fresh, imaginative, witty -- these have all been used to describe Judith McCormack's stories, gathered here in a powerful debut collection. Her offbeat characters, many of them lawyers, provide a lively look at the absurdities which lie beneath the skin of everyday life. A grocer who sells lobsters, a Cuban apothecary, a hapless thief, and a dreamy lawyer who navigates by smell are some of the people who fall in and out of trouble in these stories. The collection follows their restless attempts to find footing in a colourful but tricky landscape. All of this is detailed in language with a remarkable sense of cadence, punctuated with tart insights.

From the Inside Flap:

`Judith McCormack writes with the fluidity and confidence of a natural, and her stories are a joy to read.'

(Nino Ricci)

About the Author:

Judith McCormack's writing career has involved an unusually rapid trajectory. Her first short story was nominated for the 2000 Journey Prize. Her second story, `Plural', won an honourable mention in The Fiddlehead's fiction contest, and has now been optioned for film by Genie-award-winning filmmaker Naomi McCormack. Her third story was published in Descant, and in 2001, she was one of three authors featured in the Coming Attractions anthology. A writer, a lawyer, a twin, and an insomniac -- for her, these things overlap. `Law is really about stories,' she says. `The idea of justice is a narrative, an elegantly twisted attempt to make sense of a haphazard world.' She should know -- she was recently awarded the Law Society Medal, the Ontario legal profession's highest honour. Judith lives in Toronto with her partner, Peter Dorfman, and their two children.
