A challenging read,

This review is from: Once You Break a Knuckle (Kindle Edition)
I can see now why this collection of DW Wilson's short stories has received such mixed reviews.
At one level the stories represent a really well written, thought provoking insight into the macho world of backwater Canada, and at the other it is simply a really challenging and sometimes not massively rewarding read. The challenge is compounded by the fact that what we have are a collection of linked stories that are not set out in a chronological order, which left me (for one) struggling to understand how they fitted together and hence extract any feel for what the story cycle itself says.
In summary, a collection of stories that at times gripped me with the power of the writing, but at other times left me rather confused and cold.
