    1. What a lovely, lovely collection of short stories. There was some darkness in here, but a lot of wit and a lot of humour. Stories dealt a lot with family or romantic relationships. The author has a background in dance and many of her stories contain elements or references to dance. I thought this was a fantastic collection.


    2. worth reading, very accessible, you're bound to identify with some of the characters. good balance of humor and tragedy. i didn't love it, but i was left wanting to read more from this writer.


    3. It was okay. The stories were fairly predictable with themes of sex, death, mothers and being Canadian. Well written but nothing particularly shocking or compelling.
