Abstract

“Full Body Experience and Other Stories,” explores the lives of Newfoundlanders who are struggling to navigate tensions in the workplace brought about by the new climate of economic austerity. This collection of short stories looks at how these pressures rupture relationships between co-workers, families, romantic partners and friends. The plots of these stories are usually interior and the stylistic choice to render them in a spare realism is meant to convey the relationship between desire and a harsh social environment.
