This second enlarged edition of short stories breaks through the surface of authoritarian religion and families, and into the lives of the women and children often trapped within its constraints.

Set on the Canadian prairies, one story follows a young girl into a labyrinth of frozen meat lockers where she becomes trapped by more than just the ice. In another, a son cares for the dying father who ground his childhood to dust.

Threaded with moments of both dark humour and unexpected grace, this second edition of Mennonites Don’t Dance also contains a new story, not included in the original.
