I Got a Guy Once, Tess Gallagher, AT THE OWL WOMAN SALON

by Patti Abbott

#181-There is no way if I read this story without an author’s name above it that I would guess the author was a woman. The setting, the voice, everything about it says male writer. It’s the equivalent of a straightforward story set in a hair salon written by a man. It’s about loggers, barely making a living and how one of them owes all the others money, which they can not afford to give up.
