Small Ceremonies

Small CeremoniesSmall Ceremonies 
by Carol Shields
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
“It's the arrangement of events which makes the stories. It's throwing away, compressing, underlining. Hindsight can give structure to anything, but you have to be able to see it. Breathing, waking and sleeping: our lives are steamed and shaped into stories. Knowing that is what keeps me from going insane, and though I don't like to admit it, sometimes it's the only thing.”
The story of a year in the life of Judith Gill, a Canadian biographer. Through her relationship with the world around her, especially the people, it examines the question of how the story of our own lives is created.

This book is one of my 20 Books of Summer and it counts toward the Canadian Reading Challenge.
