Book Summary of Jigs & Reels

Take your partners, please.

Suburban witches, defiant old ladies, ageing monsters, suicidal Lottery winners, wolf men, dolphin women and middleaged manufacturers of erotic leatherwear: in these twentytwo short stories from the author of Holy Fools and Five Quarters of the Orange, the miraculous goes handinhand with the mundane, the sour with the sweet, and the beautiful, the grotesque, the seductive and the disturbing are never more than one step away.

Jigs & Reels is Joanne Harris’s first collection of short stories. As she says in her foreword, a good short story can startle, ignite, and illuminate...giving you vivid, anarchic glimpses into different worlds, different people. Here, she proves she is as good as her word by creating an eclectic selection of tales for our times that will delight, surprise, entertain and horrify in equal measure. Sly, funny, sometimes provocative but always personal, Jigs & Reels shows a side to Joanne Harris you have never seen before. So go on, be tempted. After all, it's only dancing.

Trin June 13, 2008 review from Goodreads

These short stories suffer from being rather unsubtle and predictable: almost all of them end with an anvilicious â??twistâ? or â??punchlineâ?â??in fact, two of them end with the exact same â??did you see what I did there?â? move. (The horribly shallow subject of the taleâ??is actually a child! What a sad com...

Kira September 04, 2007 review from Goodreads

i like Harris, but this collection of short stories seemed particularly forced. She writes about food and families and secrets best, and she should've stuck to that. Instead, half these stories read like freshman-year sci-fi, and the other half are the same story! She has two almost identical sto...

Amy October 02, 2011 review from Goodreads

I found this collection of short stories immensely readable but that's not to say that I thought it was good. Joanne Harries tries hard (I think TOO hard) to put in a twist in each story and while sometimes I thought this was ok - it was predictable but enjoyable in Class of '81 and Hello, Goodby...
