Empty-eyed tourists

The short stories in Genni Gunn’s new collection Permanent Tourists (Signature $19.95) are linked although they take place in an array of geographical locations across Canada, USA, Thailand, Cambodia, Mexico and Italy. Gunn describes her characters as “less thrill-seeking tourists on vacation than they are P.K.
