      Maybe best as a series of puzzle, of form, but in terms of content and narrative, a gross failure. We read this in my book club and no one else liked it. Several of the problems included:- repetition.- lack of development.- lack of sympathy with anyone in the novel.- repetition?

      I haven't read "Heroine" since it was first issued, but I still remember my disappointment. I wanted so much more from it than it gave.

      Experimental, compelling and confounding. Queer, feminist cut-up style stoned dreams of love and power and glued back together in the obscure and radical political discord of 70s Quebec.

      So good.

      Re-read for the first time since 2003. Still beautiful, sad, compelling.
