About this title


Finalist for the Ottawa Book Award. Can one come-of-age at thirty? Small-town journalist Wanda Stewart discovers she has a degenerative eye condition and begins losing sight in one eye as she grapples with a faltering marriage and the looming death of her domineering father. Wanda's experiences as a rootless Canadian air force brat and nosy journalist unfold with humour, relentless self-scrutiny and compulsive list-making. In the throes of losing her sight, she achieves a clear vision of her inscrutable husband, her father and herself. "remarkable little story." - The Ottawa Citizen, Nov. 12, 2006 "In Regarding Wanda, Barbara Sibbald shows readers that the blinkered life is no life at all. ... She does so in high style, with redeeming wit in service to a compassionate vision." - Gerald Lynch, author, Exotic Dancers and others. BARBARA SIBBALD is an award-winning journalist and author of two non-fiction books. Twelve of her short stories have appeared in North American literary magazines and anthologies; two were nominated for The Journey Prize. Regarding Wanda is her first novel.
