Catherine the Great.,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Biting Point (Paperback)
I discovered Catherine's poetry by accident. Although we are unrelated, we are both Smith's and this was the only reason I chose to read her first poetry book-The Butchers Hands.Well, all I can say is that the best things in life tend to happen this way and it was so in this case. I have subsequently read her second collection of poems-Lip, and find them to be just as good as the first.
So, on to Biting Point, a collection of short stories.There is no doubt in my mind that Catherine has the gift of creating quirky characters that one can empathize with, some you love, some you will dislike, but there are none you can ignore.Her stories take me to places I wouldn't normally frequent, but in doing so I find that I have new perspective and a greater awareness of the plight of those I wouldn't normally come in to contact with.
