Last month's book was The Reddening Path by Amanda Hale. Sadly, summer lovin' almost killed the book club - nobody showed. I was so sad because I truly wanted to discuss that book. In some ways it was utterly riveting and fascinating. The Malinche story. Parts of Paméla's story. Other parts could've used a better edit. The dialogue between Paméla's mothers rang false to me. Some of the stories wandered a bit too far and lost my interest. Anyhoo, I was all set to chat, but ... crickets chirped back at me. Oh well.
This month, it's an anthology - No Margins - by fifteen Canadian lesbian writers. Lots of whom we've already read, like Lydia Kwa, Marnie Woodrow, Ann-Marie McDonald, Nicole Brossard, Shani Mootoo, Larissa Lai and Emma Donoghue. Here's a review. Let's go!
