I have so much to say about this book but I don't know how much I'll be able to articulate clearly, because I'm in a weird emotional spot due to the book and other things happening...This is the first Vanderhaeghe I've read, and I have to read more, because he is absolutely brilliant (I seriously...

Joseph’s passion for horses was not of the same character as the old man’s had been; Joseph’s was searching, secretive, concerned with lore, confined to books. It was not love.

Daddy Lenin and Other Stories (2015)

My father, John Dowd, was working on a crew that constructed bridges all over the province – rinky-dink affairs thrown across muddy creeks, piddling streams, and trivial rivers. His job kept him away from home for two-week stretches, so he wasn’t there to apply the brakes the day Mother got it in...
