Nope, there was absolutely nothing to do with hunting or fishing in this collection of short stories. Well, maybe a little hunting and fishing, but only as it applies to a single woman in a jungle of men. All the stories in this collection followed the life of Jane Rosenal, beginning at age fourteen and ending at age thirty-something. Bank is such a keen writer and kind of makes me wonder if she ever had relationship experience with a man twenty-eight years her senior. You can't help but loving Jane, bad choices and all. She moves through life with humour and sometimes a touch of grace.
