Any Time at All and Other Stories
In the extraordinary stories of this collection, random events interrupt seemingly quiet lives, forcing people to accept consequences and make choices. Whether exploring the complexity of female sexuality or the horror of urban violence, Marshall’s fiction is always a passionate engagement with contemporary life.
This original New Canadian Library collection brings together 12 of Marshall’s best stories, including two stories here published for the first time.

This is a surprisingly eclectic series of short stories, drawn from almost 50 years of writing. It's bewildering to see how mentalities change in such a short time and while Marshall's stories are never simple, the early ones (Martha stories) do have an innocent quality that the later ones don't; in fact, the later ones are surprisingly cutting edge, feminist and haunting with strong, rebellious characters. The collection is divided into several sections: the childhood years, war years, feminist years and Norwegian influences. This wide range of topics shows off Marshall's talents for precise descriptive prose and a keen attention to detail. Each story is marvelously crafted with a moving message. I'm very grateful to have discovered her as a strong voice in Canadian literature for both her writing and her translations of another great Canadian writer: Gabrielle Roy.
