  Book review: The Douglas NotebooksPDF files may take a moment to load

The Douglas Notebooks does not achieve what it sets out to do.


The book, written by Québécois author Christine Eddie, attempts to create a modern-day fable but embraces a very loose definition of the genre. A fable is typically a tale involving animal characters, a heavy emphasis on nature and an ending with a moral. The Douglas Notebooks is presented as a fable, but one of the only elements it has in common with fables is that it centres around nature.
