Leaping Up Sliding Away illustrates Thompson's passion for the "postcard story" — very short stories characterized by suggestion, resonance, and openness. Stories that draw the reader in... and then leave him wondering, questioning.


Born in Waukegan, Illinois, Thompson came to NB in 1966 to teach at the University of New Brunswick. He has published two poetry collections, a book of short stories and three novels, all set in Fredericton. He has also written several radio plays for the CBC and a special play, Victoria's Return, presented locally during the summer of 1984.
