The Incident Report, a novel by Martha Baillie

Martha Baillie’s Incident Report is a librarian’s novel.  It is the story of a women who works in a public library but also a love story.  It walks the reader through a series of incidents that make up the life of this particular librarian.  It is an eye opener for anyone who is thinking of becoming a librarian as it attests to the public service/social aspects of librarianship.   While Baillie’s sense of humour is evident, it is the form of this novel that interests me most.  It is not a traditional chapter by chapter work, with one chapter building on the other.   Baillie herself is a librarian with Toronto Public.  paper back.  195 pgs.  Toronto:  Pedlar Press, 2009.  ISBN  978-1-897141-25-0.
