Aritha Van Herk has done an amazing job in her novel depicting a restless secretary feeling pale and burned out under the fluorescent lights of her office bathroom who transforms herself into a pig farmer. Slowly, and with great skill, the author brings out Judith. It is a simple but powerful story of a woman. Loved it.

This was first novel by young Dutch-Canadian woman in Canada back in 1978. She obviously had some bad experiences with men and this story of a young woman running her own pig farm by herself contains strong feminist themes. But she was a superb writer and I hope to read more of her work.

You can do a lot worse than this for a quick read.
It seems cosy but has a unsentimental lilt of anger throughout.
