From Our Editors

From Canadian author Melissa Steele comes an unflinching look at modern love and its implications of fear, loneliness and complacency. The first part of Donut Shop Lovers is filled with stories that hinge on how people get involved with each other, sometimes by design and sometimes by chance. The second half of the collection contains a series of connected stories about the members of one family whose lives are thrown into disarray when a marriage fails. This masterful volume establishes Steele as a strong voice in Canadian literature.
