Description

Cornelia Hoogland takes the story of Little Red Riding Hood and turns it inside out in this sensuous Canadian retelling. The woods and wolves are vivid and real, while Red herself is anything but a one dimensional girl-child. A meditation on innocence and its loss, and on the power of the green wilderness, Woods Wolf Girl uses striking lyric poetry to expose the heart of the original fairy tale.

Editorial Review

"Poet and dramatist Cornelia Hoogland is an expert at spinning fables, and nowhere is this more evident than in the earthy sexual tension exploding between a B.C. Wolf and a girl named Red." - BC Book World

"Brilliant and stark, Hoogland's poems are an imagistic treat, green as tadpoles in a pickle jar, red as 'rain the shade of lips by Chanel.'" - Winnipeg Free Press
