Starred Quill & Quire Review for Kathleen Winter's Freedom in American Songs

It's with great pleasure that we welcome Kathleen Winter back to Biblioasis with her wonderful new collection of short fiction, The Freedom in American Songs.  It's, in our opinion, her best book to date, and we're pleased to see that Quill and Quire seems as impressed with it as we are, giving it a starred review in the September issue.  Reviewer Robert Weirsma says, in part:

Winter’s language is more complex, more complicated than it initially appears: sentences linger and bloom in the reader’s mind paragraphs later. That approach, writ large, is the modus operandi for the collection as a whole. These stories, seemingly light and quirky, build to their full effect. And when they do, it is wonderful indeed.
