In a country with a rapidly expanding population of ethnic and racial minorities all levels of Canadian society cannot help but be affected. Skin looks at the personal difficulties brought about by racism, especially as it concerns young adults in the school system. Because he has chosen to write about this problem from the viewpoint of the victim, Dennis Foon brings us to an understanding of the dynamics of oppression.

Lenny and Jace are a pair of teenagers who in spite of certain differences are attracted to each other. But things grow more complicated when it is revealed that both have parents who are alcoholics. With considerable craft, the author has given us a place of not only harrowing intensity, but one of compassion.
