For the Joy of Reading: Reality, Reality

Jackie Kay does not need me to extol her works so that other people are persuaded to read them.   But this book is really special in all kinds of ways.   It is a series of short stories about women, some of which are linked to the short stories preceding them in this collection.   They are extraordinary.   There is something about them that captures the everyday lives of these women whether it is through the power of language, the choice of dialect or the sheer overpowering beauty of the stories.

I really do not need to say anything more.   Just make sure that you read this book.   It will enrich your life.
