5.0 out of 5 stars It will always break, 12 April 2013
This review is from: Once You Break a Knuckle: Stories (Hardcover)
Wilson's stories are set in far reaches of British Columbia, in the remote town of Invermere, a world of dead-end jobs, broken families, and brutal winters. The twelve stories cover three generations, using recurring characters but changing perspectives. They plot the relationship between fathers and sons, and of men and their loves.

It is a tough, unsophisticated world, populated by everyday men, good and bad, brave and cowardly. They are interested in firearms, alcohol, cars and women. They strive to redeem themselves and realise their limited ambitions, while struggling against the reality of their lives.

Great writing opens up a world, makes its characters real, and leaves you feeling as if you have known them all their lives. I enjoyed this book more than anything else I have read in the last twelve months.
