Thicker Than Water
Short stories and poems by one of Alberta Canada's most insightful writers. Formerly of Duluth, Minnesota and Stirling Scotland, Hazel Songster brings her cosmopolitan education and world view to the exploration of family relationships, of mother and sons, fathers and daughters, husbands and wives. She skillfully uses both prose and poetry, weaving a complex fabric of characters and ideas. There are threads of humor and of horror, sensitivity and love, cruelty and coldness always knit together with an eye for detail and complexity of character only achieved by fine writers.
