Happy International Day of the Book, for all of you readers who celebrate on this day (and not, as in the UK, on March 3). To mark the day, I want to celebrate the publication of Patricia O’Donnell’s remarkable short story collection Gods For Sale, now available from Snake Nation Press. Gods For Sale is one of those collections that takes small moments in seemingly small lives and finds their beauty, enormity, and grace. I loved and was astonished by this book from start to finish, and I think it very deserving of the Serena McDonald Kennedy Award (a distinction it shares, I am delighted to say, with my own collection, A Lesson in Manners).
