Dressing up for the CarnivalBook - 2000
From one of Canada's best-loved, award-winning authors comes a surprising treasure trove: Carol Shields distilling her wisdom, elegance, insouciant sense of humour and eroticism into twenty-two delightful stories. The title story sets the stage: a Shakespearean prologue in which the narrative flame jumps from character to character, each of them dressed up and putting their best foot forward, conscious of costuming themselves for the daily carnival of life. Playful, graceful, acutely observed and generous of spirit, these stories are Carol Shields at her most accomplished and appealing.
