Editorial Reviews

"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 marvellously vibrant, wholly original inelligence."- Barbara Gowdy "I loved this book, hooked by the first story"- Pickle Me This"Comparable, in their psychological nuance and intricacy, to the work of Alice Munro and Anton Chekhov... 7 Ways to Sunday is a work of remarkable compassion and grace." - Alberta Views"Lee Kvern's recent short story collection, 7 Ways to Sunday, succeeds in bringing its readers a rich world of descriptive prose and a depth of reflection rarely found in the high realist tradition of the Canadian short story collection ... the reader can trust Kvern to excite both their imagination and sense of home." - FreeFall Magazine
