Quittin’ Time by Peter Crane

It’s 1985 in Guelph, Ontario at the beginning of Coyote’s adult life. It is a time of transition. The young factory worker spends a late Friday afternoon with several of his friends. The novella Quittin’ Time explores the intimacy of friendship and its potential for closeness that also comes with the possibility of betrayal. At the heart of the casual peregrination through the city is a fundamental concern for the experience of history and time in a particular place. Ultimately it is a young man’s attempt to find the sacred in a profane world, even if it is only a glimpse.
