Through mesmerizing forays into characterization, voicing, and narrative technique, and with a clean economy of style rare even in short fiction, Astrid Blodgett conjures the moral and existential freight of her fully fledged characters in the throes of realistic moments. From the fascinatingly unhinged hero of "Getting the Cat," to the dreamy survey of prairie landscape and childhood experience of "New Summer Dresses," to the fatal irony of "Ice Break," readers will be hooked from first sentences and carried along on crisp prose. You Haven't Changed a Bit shimmers with the energy of a first book while affording readers the subtlety, complexity, and range of an accomplished master of the genre.
Astrid Blodgett is a freelance writer and editor living in Edmonton.

Editorial Reviews

"The characters in Astrid Blodgett's short stories have a way of getting under our skin to the point that, in many instances, you want to climb into the pages of her first book You Haven't Changed A Bit and give them a piece of your mind, or more... It is easy to empathize with the everyday characters in Blodgett's stoiris. She paints her word pictures with the convincing, yet subtle, brush strokes of an anime master... Blodgett keeps her wide-ranging cast of characters firmly under control while subtly challenging readers to draw their own conclusions." Prairie Journal #61 - Gordon Arnold - Prairie Journal
