About the Book

On Sylvie’s first day of school, her mother advises her to keep Sue, an undeveloped Siamese twin, hidden under her skirt. Teased, groped and tormented by the other kids, Sylvia eventually makes her escape with a sideshow that visits her hometown. At last, she has found a place where she feels at home—until life offers her the opportunity to walk in yet another direction.

Hailed as “remarkable and uplifting” by The Globe and Mail and published to equally glowing acclaim around the world, Barbara Gowdy’s groundbreaking collection of stories, We So Seldom Look on Love, pushes past the limits of convention into lives that are fantastic and heartbreakingly real.

HarperCollins brings great works of literature to life in digital format, upholding the highest standards in ebook production and celebrating reading in all its forms. Look for more titles in the HarperCollins short-stories collection to build your digital library.
