THE STRONG BOX
The Strong Box is a dark romp along the undercurrent of ordinary family life. Set in the 70s in Ontario, this short,
quirky novel by a usually serious author follows four sisters no longer young as they are dragged, by impending
mortality, into a confrontation with the past. Murky subjects, snarky humour, characters as real, irritating and
forgiveable as life, and a plot tight as a drum.
Scope, generosity, candour, harmony of passion and detachment…the intensity, the objectivity, the vision,
the power of an extraordinarily selfless and dedicated writer...to read her is to extend one’s experience
into areas of life most of us are sheltered from.
