Tyler Keevil's Writing Room

'Memory is the way we keep telling ourselves our stories - and telling other people a somewhat different version of our stories.' - Alice Munro

Tyler Keevil is an award-winning writer from Vancouver, Canada.  He is the author of three novels - Fireball, The Drive, and No Good Brother - and the short story collection, Burrard Inlet.

'Cassandra to the Sea' published in Prairie Fire

We at Tyler's publicity team had a pleasant surprise the other day, when a copy of the latest edition of Prairie Fire was delivered to our office.  It features work from a wide range of Canadian and international authors, including Warren Cariou, Beatrice Mosionier, and Garry Thomas Morse.  Tyler's contribution is his short story, 'Cassandra to the Sea', which was previously nominated for the London Short Story Prize.  The story focuses on a brother and his famous sister, who have retreated to an obscure Greek island in order to deal with her illness.  Themes of family, love, loyalty, and mortality are prominent (hey - it's a Tyler Keevil story), and it all plays out in an appropriately (given the setting) tragi-comic fashion.  You can find out more about Prairie Fire on their website, and pick up a copy of the issue (or a subscription) via their store.
