The Young in One Another's Arms (Little Sister's Classics #1)

Little Sister's Book & Art Emporium


by Jane Rule (Author) and Katherine V. Forrest (Introduction)

Jane Rule's 1977 novel, The Young in One Another's Arms, is set at the end of the Vietnam War, in and around a boardinghouse in the Kitsilano neighborhood of Vancouver. Rush, a middle aged woman accustomed to tragedy in her own life, cares for the young, temporary boarders of her house as a mother and guide.

It's a novel about the communities and the differences between people that allow them to come together, beneath the shadow of urban development that threatens to destroy the house both physically and spiritually. In Rule's sparse but generous prose, the players dance around each others' lives, moving fluidly, loving, maturing, and finding solace or heartbreak. The author's stoic sensibility and passion for life are evident on every page. This novel won the Canadian Authors Association Best Novel of the Year Award in 1978.

With an introduction by Lambda Literary Award Winner Katherine V. Forrest.
