Lee D. Thompson
What is your latest release and what genre is it? Mouth Human Must Die -literary fiction
Quick description: The book itself is a limited edition with Frog Hollow Press, who specialize in chapbooks, broadsheets – fine printing, if you will. Lovely design, great paper. The story – all 7500 words of it – is narrated by Lester, a man with a mental illness. It chronicles a few days of his life and his interactions with Dr. Shabazz, a psychologist, and Lara, a Slow Loris at the nearby zoo.
I’m from Moncton, New Brunswick (Canada) and have been publishing fiction for 18 years. I’m far too involved with literary things, from having run the provincial writers’ federation to organizing a reader series and editing a literary journal called Galleon. I’m also a freelance editor. And a songwriter/guitarist.
Here’s a review published in The Miramichi Reader.

What are you working on now?
Mouth Human… is part of a story collection, four of which I’ve written, with another four to go. They are long stories, each involving, in its own way, a psychologist named Dr. Shabazz.
Lee’s reading recommendation:
Just finished a story collection by André Narbonne, Twelve Miles to Midnight. Excellent.
