My Quill and Quire review of Swing in the House, by Anita Anand ...

... is now up on the Q&Q website. I was really hoping to like this debut collection of stories, but unfortunately I had to give it one of the tougher rides I've given a book. Lord knows there's a great deal of pressure on first-time writers to get something into print, and I always come at these kinds of harsh reviews with a tremendous amount of sympathy for what worked and what didn't. But I do encourage readers to check out other opinions than mine on this one. You can read The National Post's review of the book from last month, and watch this video interview with Anand on Canada.com.
