Dressing Up For The CarnivalLarge Print - 2000
In Carol Shields' first short collection since winning the Pulitzer Prize for The Stone Diaries, she reminds us again why literature matters (The New York Times Book Review). Here, Shields distills all of her wisdom, elegance, eroticism and insouciant humor into twenty-two wonderful narratives, each so rich that it seems to hold within it the kernel for an entire novel. Shields' genius is to make us hunger for more, because what she doesn't say in these stories is almost as important as what she does.
