Clicking into Place is the debut collection of short stories by Ottawa writer and improviser Jordan Moffatt. In these stories, characters find themselves grappling with an arachnid landlord, a friendly-but-omnipresent World Series champion, a misunderstood giant, and an anthropomorphic mass of flies. In Moffatt’s stories ideas are currency, and the wilder the better. More surprising than the outlandish cast of characters in these pages, however, is the emotional resonance drawn out of the absurd. Clicking into Place is a singular and self-assured first book by one of the funniest young voices in Canadian literature.

"...there are still some books that anyone would be lucky to read... And Jordan Moffatt wrote one of those books, and it’s this one. —Andrew Battershill, author of Pillow and Marry, Bang, Kill
