LOVE BITES is my first collection of short stories published by Unbound/Penguin-Random House, UK, forthcoming in Spring 2018.
These 13 stories were written while living in Paris and Hamburg and are set in Vancouver, Toronto, Paris, and London - all places I've lived in and fondly remember.
“LYRICAL, MOVING AND UNEXPECTED”
— Erinna Mettler, author of Fifteen Minutes
“BOTH DELICATE AND TOUGH”
— Joan Barfoot, Man Booker longlisted author of Critical Injuries
A mysterious older woman and an alienated foreigner, lost on a crowded London street, bond in their search for home. A single woman consults a soothsayer about family problems before he lures her into his own conflict. A former life model and her overgrown son prey on a tourist in a Parisian garden. Interconnected scenes in Montreal, Paris and Toronto are linked by bizarre accidents and those who witness them.
Love Bites reveals a kaleidoscope of human experience wherein the reader witnesses everyday exiles.
Stay tuned for the publication date and the party to follow.
