Baggio’s short fiction is long on appeal: Toronto Star

short stories story collection by Girl in Shades author BaggioThe 49th Shelf named Allison Baggio‘s In the Body (ECW Press 2012) one of the fall’s most-anticipated books, and for the Toronto Star, the collection did not disappoint!

On Friday the Star reviewer called the debut collection, Baggio’s follow-up to her novel Girl in Shades, “one of the most audacious books I’ve read this year,” and confessed she’s eagerly awaiting subsequent Baggio books: 

But there is sense that nothing these characters do should be taken too seriously. I often need a good laugh or even a brief giggle as I am reading so I look forward to Baggio’s next book….Baggio is too good a writer to attempt only one genre.

The full Toronto Star review of In the Body is now available online.

Congratulations, Allison!
