Digression: Books I'm Reviewing—Faith Johnston's "The Only Man in the World"
The Winnipeg Review asked me to write about The Only Man in the World, a novel composed of fourteen linked short stories that offer an account of the life of soft spoken and agreeable if unremarkable Winnipegger (via Ottawa, via Regina) Heather York, a comforting wife, duty-bound mother, and extended family caregiver. The review can be found here.
