Picked this one up at the Helsinki meetup. I guess somebody, probably pooca, brought it from Germany without journaling.

Finally finished this. It is extremely difficult to say anything general about this book: the only connection between the stories is that they are all written by Canadian women. They span a century or so in time, and have not all been written in the same language.

Overall, I liked most of the stories. I preferred the earlier stories at the beginning of the book, but some of the later ones were still good reading. (Need to edit specifics when I again have the book in hand.)

Started reading more than a year ago but then put the book down for some reason. Probably I had to do some more urgent first — and then I forgot these Stories. Now I’ve finished it. Unfortunately, I don’t remember how I felt about the first stories but I did like the rest of the book. There were quite a few authors I knew already and/or whose books I’ve got in my bookshelves. I found most interesting the authors I didn’t know beforehand. My favourite story was Unless the Eye Catch Fire . . . by P. K. Page, one of the new acquaintances I made.
Unlike VariC, I did find something common in the story themes. It is, of course, survival. Admittedly, I probably wouldn’t have seen it if I hadn’t read (over and over again during past decades) Survival: A Thematic Guide to Canadian Literature by Margaret Atwood.
Survival or not, I find this collection of stories truly intriguing. Thank you for sharing it!
The book is reserved.
