    One thought on “Racket: New Writing Made in Newfoundland”

    1. 11 short stories from up and coming authors from Newfoundland. The Jawbone Box by Matthew Lewis- Odd and evocative. The Coen brothers could make this into a movie. 3.5 starsGorillas by Jenina MacGillvray- Bittersweet. Reminded me of a Shirley Jackson story. A slice of not so normal life. 4 starsCrossbeams by Iain McCurdy- The least professional of the bunch. The choppy, halting style didn't work, for me. 1 starHoles by Melissa Marbeau- This was my favourite. At only 8 pages long, I wanted to kno [...]

    2. Previously unpublished short stories from budding authors from Newfoundland. I love writers from Newfoundland who write about their home province. They are truly a gift, and not given enough recognition for this gift. Very unique. We need to read more books from this province. I can recommend many if you want to get started my friends!

    3. This is a fantastic collection of short fiction by some of Newfoundlands most exciting new writers. My absolute fave was Morgan Murray's "KC Accidental". An absolute riot! Also really enjoyed "23 Things I Hate in No Particular Order" and "A Drawer Full of Guggums". All in all a very strong collection. I love how short stories offer the reader a whirlwind, power packed adventure that has been condensed into a brief burst. They read like a punch to the face which leaves you reeling and regurgitati [...]

    4. This Lisa Moore edited collection is a selection of short stories by members of Memorial University’s Creative Writing program. As a collection of short stories from a variety of authors this book can be rated on its weakest story, on an average of each story, or, as I have chosen to do, for what the book in its entirety achieves. I give it five stars. There are stories that I did not enjoy as much as others and a few that I enjoyed tremendously (notably Morgan Murray’s absurdly funny “KC [...]

    5. I had mixed feelings about the stories in this book. Some were fantastic, others I found hard to get through, or I skipped parts because I wasn't as interested, mostly because of the writing style. I was somewhat disappointed that many of the stories in this book were very normative, but many of them were satisfyingly nostalgic for a Newfoundlander living away.

    6. This is an excellent collection of diverse short stories. I laughed at loud at several of the stories, and others had me nodding in recognition.

    7. Right. So. I confess that I didn't read all the stories. I skimmed some, read some, enjoyed the ones I read fully, but didn't find most of them memorable. My absolute favourite was Morgan Murray's "KC Accidental" - I even read that one aloud to my own writing class and had the students do an analysis of it. It's hilarious; reminiscent of Codco, Hatching Matching and Dispatching, and the group of my mother's friends that my father calls "the funeral parlour crowd". Morbid Newfoundland humour at i [...]
