In praise of Peggy Freeman

I have read Peggy Freeman’s book reviews, published in your paper, for many years. I have come to rely not only on her never-flamboyant down-to-earth assessments but also on her choice of books to review.

I did not realize how completely I have come to trust her opinions until I read her latest review on Hellgoing: Stories by Lynn Coady. Although this book merited the 2013 Giller Prize for Coady, based on Ms. Freeman’s review, I will not be reading it.

No book, even an award winner, can appeal to everyone and, with Ms. Freeman’s description of the book as a “downer,” I know that it is not the book for me.
