5.0 out of 5 stars Wow! March 30 2000
Format:Paperback
I'm not surprised - I knew Gowdy was an artist when I picked up her novel "Falling Angels" by accident. This book of short stories is an incredible and dizzying fall into the world of the bizarre - where everything that is off-the-wall, quirky, and unacceptable, becomes normal, textured, and sprinkled with a bit of reality - though not to the point of being ho-hum. Oh, no! Barbara Gowdy will grab you by the neck and MAKE you admit it's a beautiful world, filled with odd, gorgeous people. I love this author - she is the only writer I've ever known who revels and celebrates the crazy shapes and colours of the human animal.

Nothing this woman writes will ever disappoint you. All I ever wish and hope for is that this woman continues with her talent for as long as possible.

4.0 out of 5 stars Every story is a gem! Sept. 22 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
I savored these stories--only one a night. They were fantastic. Every one is truly bizarre but truly commonplace at the same time. The characters--freaks and victims of perverse circumstance--are revealed in the end to possess a kind of mundane sensibility. The everydayness of these characters is just captivating.
