BOOKS IN CANADA REVIEW OF ONE ROOM IN A CASTLE

Karen Connelly has an enviable, somewhat disquieting ability to possess the spirit of a place... The traveling self she discloses in One Room in a Castle is young, passionate and terrific at capturing the look and feel of a foreign land. .. One Room in a Castle contains.. .lyrical, evocative prose as well as a few fine short stories and some astute passages of self-discovery. It is particularly good about sex - rarely in explicit terms, more often as a state of aroused, erotic encounter with the world... The unknown, the faraway, the endlessly strange spring to life in her work.
