What's Come Over Her

ISBN: 978-1-894345-61-3

Mourre’s short stories are marked with the wry awareness of authentic prairie people — their bluntness, honesty and dishevelled truths. There is in each of them a universality that is both mythical and ordinary, delivered in a straight-ahead dramatic telling. Mourre’s writing weaves its prairie spells as it did in her first collection Landlocked.

Set against extended metaphors of seeding, harvesting, seasonal migration, and the implacable forces of nature, Helen Mourre’s fiction quietly takes its place in the front row of western Canadian realism.

"Only a very few writers capture their settings so precisely." — Saskatoon StarPhoenix
