Facing the Other Way
Boularderie Island Press
In Facing the Other Way Davies portrays a cast of idealistic housemates working toward a better world. In youth, with all of the innocence and naivete of the ‘sixties, they rescue a pregnant girl from the street and take in abandoned babies. In the disenchantment and insecurity of middle age, one faces childhood guilt while another questions her relevance as a social worker. And through it all, when it counts, they are there for each other.
Gwen Davies grew up as an Air Force brat, exploring Europe in the family’s VvV camper. Her stories appear in a number of literary magazines, US and Canada, and in 2013 she won The Antigonish Review’s Sheldon Currie Fiction Award. She teaches writing, and has run the Community of Writers retreat in Tatamagouche, NS, for fifteen years. In her sixties she took up parkour-learning to get past obstacles in the landscape and the mind-which put her on the front cover of Halifax Magazine. She lives and walks a lot in downtown Halifax.
