What is your latest release and what genre is it? 7 Ways To Sunday – Short Story Collection

Quick description: 7 Ways To Sunday – a short story collection that grapples with humanity in all its flawed, often guffawed glory. An artist’s girlfriend dies by mistake. A mother holds surveillance on her son’s foray into drugs. A sibling’s jealousy raises its green head toward her sickly brother. A father’s death; a mother’s fear for her unbridled, grade-two son. A hijab-wearing woman challenges the modern world of Save-on groceries, along with an arborist, his wife and a Shar-Pei – all in need of an attitude adjustment. A bed-ridden woman looks back over her life. RCMP and prostitutes arrive for family tea on a Wednesday afternoon. These are some of the happy/sad, mad/glad themes laid out in this Oh-Humanity collection of stories captured with humour, compassion and insight by Lee Kvern.

“Lee Kvern is one of those generous writers who leaves her heart and intelligence on every page. And what a big heart it is. What a marvelously vibrant, wholly original intelligence.” ~ Barbara Gowdy
