So, just when I decided that Three and a Half Deaths would be my last Donoghue ever (simply because it is the last of her books I have on my kindle), she pulls three short stories out of the bag that I really enjoyed reading:
What the Driver Saw – set in the south of France in the 1920s and based on a true story.
The Trap – set in New York in the 1870s and telling of a crime, but who committed it?
Sissy – set in London, Ontario, describing the effect of the death of a family member.
Fall – set at Niagara Falls in 1901 tells of bravery or is it recklessness?
All four stories are of different styles, different eras and predicaments, but all have death at the heart of the story.
Maybe there is hope for me and Donoghue’s books, yet?
