    One thought on “The Mystic Market”

    1. This was a quirky book. I found it refreshing that it was so different from the norm in dialogue and humor. Laughed out loud a few times. Not as smooth of a read as I usually like but it certainly broadened my horizons.

    2. Ruth Perkinson's latest novel solidifies her place as the voice of the displaced. From the beginning of her career with Vera's Still Point, to Breaking Spirit Bridge, Sterling Road Blues, to The Mystic Market, all of Perkinson's work is peopled with characters who live outside the main flow of traffic.

    4. Ruth Perkinson is one of my absolutely favourite authors. Her books are so different from anybody else's, and always make me laugh and cry. The Mystic Market is no exception!
