Shields

I picked up The Stone Diaries by Carol Shields only to discover that I'd never read it. It must have been another Shields. Anyway, this is a gorgeous book, deeply imagined and written with care and delicacy. Sometimes the protagonist tells her own story and sometimes allows a third person voice to tell the tale. A mysterious Canadian novel of the type I'm a sucker for. Daisy grows up in Winnipeg and weds in Bloomington Indiana. This is as far as I've gotten. I know I'll finish it. The author has me in her clutches.
