Gwynne Hunt's Unlocking the Tin Box (Silver Bow Publishing 2019 / 9781774030103) is a family memoir that describes growing up in Vancouver and Kamloops in the 1950s and 1960s in a dysfunctional home with alcoholic parents and sexual abuse. Hunt describes it as "a personal journey of living with a con man and a carny, but a still very caring Dad. He kept the family going surviving and growing." With some DNA evidence for grist, this is a generational journey. Hunt has also self-published a collection of poetry called bruises and bad haircuts [sic] and a book about murdered and missing women and children in Canada called ramage [sic].
