Weave Paperback – April 1, 2004
The book fascinates on both narrative and lyric levels. Pasold never confuses feeling with sentiment, and she has a gift for memorable images which work together to form a poetic vocabulary ... This book is a keeper, one you ll reread and read aloud. --~Harry Vandervlist, Alberta Views
Weave reads as a memoir of the twentieth century in a world bounded by Prague and Peru and the Russian Front and the shores of Lake Ontario. The narrator is a traveler and an exile, and she seems to be perpetually in transit. Her brother Wilhelm serves as mythical interlocutor, and we are led by their sibling love into and out of the darkness of Europe. Weave is quite simply a masterpiece: there is more in these eighty odd pages than in most novels. --~Stephen Osborne, Geist
Pasolds ability to capture the personal, the political and societal expectations of an era is impressive; the narrator telling stories on an aeroplane or in a train compartment, as if we are hurtling / through a tunnel and / neither of us knows what is on the other side. --~Rajinder S. Pal, This Magazine
