Since I love reading short fiction, I thought I would stay in Canada and go right from Alice Munro to some of Margaret Atwood’s short stories. I’ve read a couple of her books (The Blind Assassin and The Handmaid’s Tale) and thought they were excellent. I got Wilderness Tips from the library and have it on my Kindle for two weeks. It’s a collection of ten stories, including one I’ve already read – “Death by Landscape” – but I think this version might be slightly different. I read in the front of the book that this story and some others were previously published “in slightly different form.”
This morning I read the first story, “True Trash” and thought it was great so I already know I’ve made a good choice.
There are many different covers for Wilderness Tips and that surprises me, but I haven’t researched it to know why. Probably just a marketing thing.
My cover on the Kindle looks like this:
But I think I like this cover better:
