10 Women, 1 George
October 16th, 2015
Anvil Press is releasing George Bowering’s new collection of short fiction, 10 Women, coincidentally with his appearance at the Vancouver International Writers Festival Tues. October 20. (http://writersfest.bc.ca/2015/events/10-george-bowering-conversation-colin-browne)
Each of the stories affords a portrait of a woman with whom the author may or may not have had either an intimate and/or a meaningful relationship. The promotional material states, “Depending on your proclivities, some of them might even seem pretty hot, like the lurid fantasies that illustrate the covers of pulp fiction novels, the ethereal intellectual beauties that emanate from poetic fields of asphodels, or the petit bourgeois housewives that litter Alice Munro stories; these ten characters remind us that for every fetish there’s a partner.”
5.75 x 8.75 | 192 pp
$20 CAN / $20 US
George Bowering is featured on the cover of the current Autumn issue of BC BookWorld, available electronically from the home page of this website.
