Year 3 Book 1

Trader by Charles de Lint

If you’ve been following this blog you know that I don’t often write descriptions for the books I read, but I need to write a little something about this one.

Pretty much anyone who has talked to me about literature knows how much I love Charles de Lint. I’ll buy any book of his that I come across in a second hand store. While my collection is still too small for my liking it consists of about 11 books or more.

This novel combines the fiction from him that I love and with an added perk: there’s a lesbian storyline! I’m not sure if I’ve ever had the pleasure of reading a book that had a lesbian couple in it that isn’t the main focus of the book.  Don’t get me wrong, I love that. But it’s also really nice, and really comforting to read a book with an lgbtq relationship that’s just “there”.
