Nancy comes of age in a British colonial school in 1950s St. John’s; Georgina discovers women’s liberation in a humorous evocation of the 1960s; Jamie returns to the resettled outport where he grew up, Emily discovers the dark side of her new husband. A modern-day literary extension of traditional oral storytelling, Too Unspeakable for Words is an interconnected collection of short stories infused with the imaginary of the Newfoundland cultural idiom.
