Review: Northwest Passages, Barbara Roden [Oct. 26th, 2009|03:02 am]
oldcharliebrown
"Northwest Passages by Barbara Roden: a virtuoso debut collection of ten stories from the industrious co-founder and editor of British Columbia's splendid Ash-Tree Press. Roden knows the literature as well as anyone currently writing, and pays fine homage to it in such deftly woven stories as a replete reimagining of Victorian England's notorious Constance Kent murder case ("After"), a grim new wrinkle on the serial-killer theme ("The Palace"), and a tale of ill-fated Antarctic exploration ("Endless Night") that combines wrenching emotional force with who-blew-out-that-candle vicarious terror."
