After nine years together, Kathryn and Chris have the sort of relationship most would envy. When Chris tells Kathryn about his feelings for Emily, a vivacious young woman he sees often at the Laundromat, Kathryn encourages her boyfriend to pursue this other woman--certain that her bond with Chris is strong enough to weather what may come. As Kathryn and Chris stumble into polyamory, they reconsider their past and what they thought they knew about love.

From Library Staff

"In this psychologically perceptive debut, a young couple struggles with the realities of nonmonogamy." -- Kirkus review. The author was the recipient of the Far Horizons Award for Short Fiction (The Malahat Review) and the Peter Hinchcliffe Fiction Award (The New Quarterly).

Unforgettable characters move in and out of each other’s lives in this contemporary novel about relationships and self reflection. A wonderful Vancouver novel. This debut novel was long-listed for the 2017 Scotiabank Giller Prize. Try this book if you enjoy Jane Rule and Sarah Schulman.

After listening to a radio interview where the concept of polyamory was described, I felt myself caught up in prejudice, thinking, yeah, yeah, that has been tried before, but it never works. Time for a challenge! In every new generation, a few try to break out of the reassuring but restrictive traditions of marriage, and this book gives a microscopic view of the exact workings of such an endeavour. Well done!
