My (Mostly) Manitoba Stories
by Tom Goodman

With its racial, ethnic and language diversity, Manitoba is in many resepcts the most Canadian of our Canadian provinces. My (Mostly) Manitoba Stories is a collection of short stories (mostly) set in Manitoba and spanning a timeline from the early-eighteen hundreds to the present. Politicians, lawyers, and persons of various ethnicities and backgrounds all become subjects in this unique collection.

A flamboyant lawyer and racehorse owner defends his trainer against an allegation of cheating. The life of a Winnipeg schoolteacher is disrupted when he inherits a powder horn recovered after the Battle of Seven Oaks. A Mennonite politican enjoys a successful career, but ultimately betrays the people who love him. An elderly Icelandic grandmother reveals the harsh reality of war to her grandson.

With stories of family heritage both embraced and disowned, political shenanigans, and history viewed through unlikely lenses, My (Mostly) Manitoba Stories provides an intriguing yet disconcertingly familiar picture of Manitoba.

A retired lawyer, Tom Goodman resides in Stonewall, Manitoba with his wife, Deborah and his dog, Tugs. They have four grown children. Goodman's first book, a non-fiction entitled “Her Darling Boy, the letters of a mother, her beloved son and the heartbreaking cost of Vimy Ridge”, was published in 2016, and Goodman was nominated for the Manitoba Book Awards Best First Book award in 2017. The book was favourably reviewed by the Canada’s History Magazine and featured at the Vimy Centennial Exhibition presented by the Canadian War Museum in 2017.
