A Girl Like Sugar by Emily Pohl-Weary
A Girl Like Sugar by Emily Pohl-Weary
I'm not exactly sure what all the hype is about Emily Pohl-Weary...
Although I do think that Sugar was fairly well written - the images of Toronto made me cringe. I think the stereotypes that are played up in T.O. rags like the NOW are really played out. Doms, lesbians, protestors,and 'artists' who listen to obscure bands - blech!! I almost feel as if the author was out to capture every hot topic this city is obsessed with. These aren't people in this story, just gross caracatures of Torontonians...
However, if this is the turn that Canadian fiction is taking...I guess we all have to get used to it!
