From Publishers Weekly
"Two sisters fell down the same well, and the well was Maurice Dove." Acclaimed Canadian short story writer Hay's first novel, recently shortlisted for the prestigious Giller Prize, is a compelling and highly original debut telling the story of two sisters and the jealousy that irrevocably changes their lives when a young student comes to stay on their father's Saskatchewan farm in the 1930s. Ernest Hardy is widowed, a single father raising two young girls on the rural prairies, when twenty-something Maurice Dove arrives from Ottawa to study the region's unusual weather patterns. Eight-year-old Norma Joyce, dark, fiercely intelligent, and inflicted with early puberty, claims Maurice from the first moment she sees him, albeit unrequitedly. Her sister, the "beautiful, saintly" Lucinda, 17, falls deeply in love....

Review
"This monumental work is a testimony to the science of adult education and the skills of Wilson and Hayes. It is a veritable feast for nourishing our understanding of the current field of adult education. The editors and their well-chosen colleagues consistently question how we know and upon what grounds we act. They invite us to consider not only how we can design effective adult education, but also why we practice in a particular socioeconomic context. My dear departed friends, Paulo Freire and Malcolm Knowles, would be delighted at the politics and science of this encyclopedic handbook." (Jane Vella, author of Taking Learning to Task and Learning to Listen, Learning to Teach)

"This new handbook captures the exciting intellectual and professional development of our field in the last decade. Its recognition of the...

From Library Journal
Hay's (A Student of Weather) second book of short stories examines the changing seasons of friendship, its peaks and valleys, joys and betrayals. In many of these tales, she illustrates how the course of friendship at first runs smoothly but invariably transforms itself over time, sometimes even burning itself out. The characters in these interconnected stories come alive and earn readers' sympathy and understanding. Maureen in The Fire or Ivy in The Parents could well be one's neighbor, sister, or grandmother. In spare prose, the stories exert a quiet forcefulness and convey a sense of character, message, and plot without pretense or superficiality. A gifted storyteller, Hay has written a wise, penetrating, and memorable collection of stories that communicates the vulnerable nature of friendship....

From Library Journal
Along with a riveting narrative of the hurricane that smashed Galveston, TX, in 1900 (killing at least 6000 out of 38,000 residents) and the heroic relief efforts afterward, readers will find absorbing the accounts of Galvestonians rebuilding their city, reshaping gender and race relations, altering the environment, and instituting the nation's first commission form of city government. Professional historians Bixel (assistant editor, Journal of Southern History) and Turner (history, Univ. of Houston, Downtown) skillfully show how the hurricane forced changes in the city's civic cultureDunfortunately allowing Jim Crow modifications of segregation policy as well as economic boosterism and Progressive Era reforms. Written for both the lay reader and historian, this readable and well-illustrated book tells an...

From Publishers Weekly
Garbo hardly ever laughed, and when she did, it was dubbed; reality is similarly transformed in this quirky, dreamy novel infused with movie mania. A plague of cinematic absorption settles over an Ottawa neighborhood in Hay's latest offering (her debut, A Student of Weather, was shortlisted for the Giller Prize). Harriet Browning's ascetic mother refused her the frivolity of the cinema as a child, and as an adult she views films obsessively. In middle age, she is the center of a small group of cinephiles: her son, Kenny, obsessed with Sinatra, watches classic movies to forget his troubles at school; her daughter, Jane, on the brink of adolescence, longs for the glamorous life; her neighbor and friend Dinah may be attracted mainly by the familial activity of watching together.
