Attracted by the cover and its university press imprint, I picked up this collection of short stories at an honesty bookshop for 50p (80¢). I am glad I did not pay more. W.P. Kinsella is a Canadian author with a fondness for writing fiction about baseball, but fortunately only a few of the 13 stories in Red Wolf, Red Wolf head off in that direction. Most are whimsical, often teetering on the brink of sentimentality. In “Butterfly Winter” and “Mother Tucker’s Yellow Duck”, they lose their footing ...more

This collection is a dud and the worst Kinsella I've read.

"Billy in Trinidad" is the only worthwhile selection. Most of the stories take a typical Kinsella approach of unique characters in one-of-a-kind situations, but that's where it ends.

I used to read short stories quite often, but haven't much lately, and enjoyed the change. Some short stories are like little novels, with lots of plot and changes and climax and so forth. These are more of the vignette variety; little word pictures about a situation or a slice of time, often, as the author says in the introduction, featuring some change driven by a visitor or some other event. Nicely done.

Canadian author WP Kinsella writes interesting short stories, mostly set in British Columbia, an area we love to explore. What happens between and among his characters could happen just as easily in America, but it is fun to have a brief cultural exchange in imagination.
