A work of startling imaginative power, this collection of linked short stories about working-class women is set in the small town of Tisol, Ontario. Many of the women spend their weekdays at Beadleman's Poultry Processing Plant and their Saturday evenings at the Tilson Inn. Grittily realistic in its evocation of the lives of working women, 'Birds of a Feather' is also comic in the attention it pays to their unglamorous jobs at Beadleman's and gripping in its account of the fury the women unleash on the town's violent womaniser.
