The Day the Men Went to Town — 16 Stories by Women from Cape Breton
selected by Ronald Caplan • 176 pages
STRONG WRITING BY WOMEN!
Starting with Tessie Gillis, women have been writing the non-traditional story of Cape Breton—the deeper, sometimes darker, side. They offer here a rich, rare view—of being young, of being old, even of being a man.
Stories about fisherwomen and space aliens, the poignancy of family, tragedy in the mines, love.
