Description

WINNER OF THE 2013 Stephen Leacock Award for Canadian Humour Writing!

27-year-old Frieda Zweig is at an impasse. Behind her is a string of failed relationships and half-forgotten ambitions of being a painter; in front of her lies the dreary task of finding a real job and figuring out what “normal” people do with their lives. Then, a classified ad in the local paper introduces Frieda to Gladys, an elderly woman who long ago gave up on her dreams of being a dancer. The catch? Gladys is a ghost.

In Dance, Gladys, Dance, Cassie Stocks tells the uplifting story of a woman whose uncanny connection with a kindred spirit causes her to see her life in a new way—as anything but ordinary.


Praise for Dance, Gladys, Dance

"Dance, Gladys, Dance is a lovely demonstration of the importance of creating, whether it’s art, friends or food. Connection—reaching out to others—is the ultimate value of this charming and thoughtful novel."
~ The Globe and Mail

"[a]n entertaining blend of humour and pathos, friends and families, the living and the dead."
~ Anjana Balakrishnan, Herizons Magazine

"[t]he characters are zany and interesting, and, while Stocks has a witty tone, she deals with very serious, sometimes downright devastating, themes."
~ Caroline Barlott, Avenue Edmonton

"I loved hanging out with the characters in this book."
~ Joy Fisher, The Coastal Spectator
