Loose Pearls is a collection of short stories, gems from a practiced and gifted writer whose insights and imaginings are, as the title suggests, beautiful and mysterious. In contrast with the the superficial sameness of a string of pearls, however, Troicuk calls our attention to the unique and the flawed. Like natural pearls her characters are alive with subtle, resilient and troubled colours.
D.C. Troicuk is a careful and imaginative writer in Sydney, Nova Scotia.
