Sometimes They Sang - Helen Potrebenko
By Helen Potrebenko
Published by Publication Studio Vancouver
Sometimes They Sang is the story of Odessa, a young woman from a displaced rural family, set against a backdrop of feminist collectives and radical bookstores, unemployment and labour struggles, rising rents and government austerity measures. This is a working-class, feminist novel crafted by a smart, critical voice that doesn’t idealize resistance to capitalism or patriarchy; Potrebenko is frank and incisive when it comes to the dynamics of love, friendship and everyday life.
Publication Studio Vancouver is pleased to offer a new edition of this novel, originally published by Press Gang in 1986 but sadly out of print for several years.
