Mountain City Girls – available Nov 10 2015

Posted October 13th, 2015 by Anna

 

Try as I may to get this image centered it refuses to budge. I always did lean a little to the left but not this much..In the fall of 2012, after Jane added extra leaves to her dining table making room for me, the two of us began to write a family memoir. For two and a half years we conjured up the sad and happy past, warmed by the gas fireplace in my sister’s dark cosy living-room, missing one deadline because we couldn’t let go of the past. We wondered whether the book would ever see the light of day. Well, the day is upon us. We hope people will like it.

Mountain City Girls Facebook page. Open to all. You don’t have to join, though Facebook is a known cookie monster. There are reviews of the book there with links to radio and tv interviews, and old photographs.

For those who don’t do Facebook, attention: Campbell Hendery and Edward Snowden, here are a couple of nice reviews..’overflows with wit and warmth!!!!!’ So far, they’ve all been favorable! The book is an easy read. You can open MCG anywhere and start reading it, like the I Ching. But as the RBC teller once told Jane when she was changing US money to Canadian ‘we dont bodder wit coins.’

    Amazon.ca has my money already. So to speak. I await their usual prompt delivery.

    Looking forward for my Amazon.ca copy to cross the border. Do you and Jane foresee a book tour?

    I wish that Anna and Jane would autograph some of their books and profits to go to whatever worthy cause they love. The Mcgarrigle sisters have a been a wonderful influence to me as I play their songs while I battle my own health issues. To these three sisters I’m forever grateful!

    This will no doubt make a superb “mate” for Dane’s “Kate and Anna McGarrigle
    Songs and Stories”. The latter has long been my go-to volume whenever I need some inspiration.

    Not to seem greedy, but with Mountain City Girls now in the can, so to speak, is there any prospect of seeing “Songs of Roland” in the near future?

    About time!(just kidding) It will wend its way North, way way North, and help pass those days when the sun never shines. Thank you Anna.
