Overview

Dance, Gladys, Dance by Cassie Stocks

27-year-old Frieda Zweig is at an impasse. Behind her is a string of failed relationships and half-forgotten ambitions of being a painter; in front of her lies the dreary task of finding a real job and figuring out what "normal" people do with their lives. Then, a classified ad in the local paper introduces Frieda to Gladys, an elderly woman who long ago gave up on her dreams of being a dancer.The catch? Gladys is a ghost.In Dance, Gladys, Dance, Cassie Stocks tells the uplifting story of a woman whose uncanny connection with a kindred spirit causes her to see her life in a new way--as anything but ordinary.

I chose this book for my book club because it was the winner of a Canadian prize for humorous fiction in 2013 (Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour). After a string of serious, heavy books I wanted to read something lighter for a change and I figured that since it won a prize, it had been vetted by a critical readership. This was a delight! It is quirky and clever and will make you giggle. Cassie Stocks writes with a sharp eye for people and places and develops characters that stay with you once you have turned the last page. I only wish I could read it again as though it were the first time, it is a real pleasure. I am recommending it to everyone who wants to read something fun and smart.
