Head Cook at Weddings & Funerals and Other Stories of Doukhobor Life
Book jacket/back: Head cook at Doukhobor weddings and funerals is a position of honor. And in this unique collection of related short stories, the rich culture, customs and history of the Doukhobor-Canadian experience is captured. Set in a small British Columbian town in the late 1950s, these stories tell of Ana, a girl growing up within tow cultures, and her struggle to be part of two parallel worlds that never quite meet. With wisdom and simplicity, and an unerring eye for simplicity, Vi Plotnikoff gives us a fascinating glimpse into the everyday lives of a young woman, of a family, and of the Doukhobor community.
