About the book:

Ivan E. Coyote has developed a reputation as one of North Americas most disarming storytellers; her tales of life as an out dyke on the roads and trails of the North as well as rural America are rich in their plainspoken, honest truths. In Loose End, her third story collection, Ivan focuses her attention on the city: urban life, specifically in the East End of Vancouver, a diverse neighborhood of all typesold, young, gay, straight, white, black, Asiancommuning at local coffee bars over hot rods, the art of skinny-dipping, and changes in the weather. Ivan presides over this circus of activities with her cool gaze, whether its trying to impress the woman with the hot tub next door, or showing her mother how to use a cordless drill.

Ivans world is the world of being out and open and unafraid; its also a world in which no ghettosracial, cultural, or defined by sexuality or genderexist. With the calm, observant eye of a master storyteller, Ivan E. Coyote shows us how to break free of the rigors of authority and be true to ourselves, warts and all.

Ivan E. Coyote is the author of two previous story collections, Close to Spider Man and One Mans Trash; she was also a member of the Taste This collective, which published the book Boys Like Her. She recently completed a CD of music and spoken word with her band One Trick Rodeo, entitled Youre a Nation. She lives in Vancouver.
