Book Lists

Barefoot Girls and Wild Woman

Karen Hofmann's latest book is the short story collection Echolocation. We're pleased to feature this recommended reading list she created for us. "This is a list of Canadian books with female characters who break the rules, ignore decorum, sin, err, shoot at people, take off their shoes in public, love who they shouldn’t, and otherwise transgress. These unconventional woman are also associated with the landscape—not in the classic sense of fertility and cultivation, but in their ability to discover or rediscover and draw on their inherent, individual, untrammelled selves."
