Reviews:

“No one charts the geography of loneliness better than Russell Wangersky. Writing with clarity and precision, he reveals lives lived under a slow compression, of tension that demands release. At turns lyrical, wry, darkly comedic, but always heartfelt, Wangersky’s collection takes the short story to new heights of grace and skill.” – Will Ferguson, author of 419

“Russell Wangersky has mastered the short story. The pieces in this
collection are tender, violent, humorous, sorrowful, and sexy – sometimes
all at the same time. In its exploration of human betrayal and human
connection, The Path of Most Resistance captures the raw physical energy
that simmers just below the surface of everyday life. This collection is a
true gift from one of Canada’s most talented writers of short fiction.” –
Angie Abdou, author of Between

“Wangersky writes with a tightly controlled eye for detail, a skill with description – both emotional and physical – that blossoms into a rare vitality.” Quill & Quire
