In this captivating collection from the Governor General’s Award-shortlisted author, Shashi Bhat, Death by a Thousand Cuts (McClelland & Stewart $24.95), showcases short stories with breathtaking insight into the daily tribulations and societal pressures experienced by women. Each story delves into the complexities of relationships, addressing the “what ifs” and moments of profound self-discovery. From a writer grappling with her ex’s novel about their breakup to a woman embarking on a nightmarish search for answers as she begins to lose her hair, these tales are woven with honesty, tenderness and a razor-sharp wit. With a keen eye, Bhat explores themes of rage, longing, illness, and bodily autonomy, unraveling the intricate threads that bind a woman to her relationships with others and, ultimately, with herself. 9780771095115
