More Praise for Buday...

... this time from the Vancouver Sun's Weekend review section. Mentions an upcoming review, which I'll bring to Thirsty as soon as it runs.

For now, from The Vancouver Sun:

To Be A Man. By all accounts, Grant Buday's slender new historical novel, Dragonflies, is a stunning work. Buday reconstructs the last days of the Trojan War, focusing on Odysseus. Our review, coming soon, sees it as a companion piece to Margaret Atwood's The Penelopiad and says much of its excellence lies in its "subtle and clever interrogation of masculinity." Buday wrote of males caught in a bind in earlier books such as White Lung and Rootbound.
