Posted on behalf of the lovely Marcella:
I just finished Garbo Laughs—which I LOVED–by Elizabeth Hay. Quiet yet powerful novel centered around one family and neighbourhood in Ottawa during the big ice storm (big for us. not sure if it was for you guys too) and in particular one woman who ‘lives’ through movies-particularly old movies–her emotional life really revolves around the stars and plots and so she tunes out of her real life for her reel life–oh the cliche, marcella! anyway–I loved the language and storyline and I think you will too!
