Taking the Stairs

"From beginning to end - from teenage adoration for Lana Banana, to traumatic talent contests, penniless days spent in bed, low-paid jobs, rejection slips, phone calls, film scripts and short stories - it is horny, abject, real, funny and grand."

Annie Freud
Author of Best Man That Ever Was (Picador)
Winner of the Glen Dimplex New Writing Award, 2008

“Taking the Stairs is subtle,
desperation-laced with bits of
hope that compel it forward with
improbable force. It’s Stiles’ best,
and a winner by all accounts.”

Corb Lund,
Juno award-winning cowboy poet
