Jori Phillips was a delight to behold at the recent Denman Island Readers and Writers Festival. Her dress of many pages was inspired. Apparently she has received some criticism for recycling the old thesaurus. She does not deserve that at all. Most books, and especially paperbacks, have a limited shelf life. She sensitively and artistically chose a book that had seen much use and was in fact a reference book whose time had come. She was able to offer it service in a marvelous new means of expression. Could a pocket book ask for a better, more respectful transition? I think not.
