Spending time with Mavis Gallant

Paris Stories - Mavis Gallant, Michael Ondaatje

Reading through the short stories of Mavis Gallant is taking time. Already. Still in the first collection.

 

Even though the early stories do not seem quite as layered and complicated as the stories of Alice Munro (my last reading project for short stories), they still invite rereading.

 

There is always something simmering beneath the scene. Mind you, a single read does sketch a lovely moment. But the rereading is very rewarding. 

 

What reading project is taking a lot of your time these days?
