Life Rattle No. 1308 features two stories from new Life Rattle writer Canya Selvakumar.

Canya Selvakumare writes with a natural, easy flow that belies the complex subtext in her stories.

"Scrabble," anchored by a scene of family playing the familiar game, drifts in an out of the boardgame to brings us a series of vignettes that document the immediate, brutal impact of a marriage breakdown on the family unit.

"The Wingwoman" takes us out on the town, to a trendy bar on College Street in Toronto, with three young woman, including two who have been friends since childhood. Last call brings a stab of betrayal, subtle yet potent, that sours the night.
