Tim Higgins -- Night Table Recommendations

by Events Winnipeg - Wednesday, Jan 26, 2011 at 1:25pm

Why write? Why history? Perhaps it started with my being an army brat. Not a typical army brat, mind. Not like my temporarily close friends who disappeared every couple of years when their fathers were posted to who knows where.

No, my dreams of world travel were dashed when it became apparent that my father was never going to be posted anywhere but Winnipeg. But, even if I didn't get the unique perspective that comes with early travel, there was still Dieppe.

Middle Stories by Sheila Heti (House of Anansi)

I'm reading Sheila Heti's Middle Stories which came out in 2000. Heti writes with that Carver/Hemingway sparseness but few of the constraints of realism. Instead of pure minimalism or rich magic realism, hers is a kind of bare-bones, darkly comic, free-for-all but both full of surprises and laugh out loud funny. She is irreverent and unsentimental but smart and hip. I want to read her new novel, How Should a Person Be because how could you not want to read a book that asks that question in its title and tantalizes you with the hope that the question could be answered in some satisfying way?
