The Heart Is Its Own Reason

A collection of stories by

The Heart Is Its Own Reason marks the dazzling debut of a new voice in Canadian fiction. With a surgeon's skill, Natalee Caple reveals the workings of the human heart and the eternal search for love. In the title story, Lana, nursing her infant son, tells her friend Karen: "Men are a kind of blade. Even though you can see how sharp and quick they are against another woman's skin it still surprises you when you embrace them and they cut, cut through you, escaping out of your opened back." But it is Lana who wielded the knife, stabbing her lover Gary, and playing Miles Davis as he slowly bled to death. The police can understand a crime of passion, but not the music and not the darker terror that drove her to murder.
