about

You could be married for over 10 years and still not know your spouse. You could think you knew everything about your dad but still he surprises you at your mother's death bed. You think you know everyone in your small town but you'll never know the dark secret your drinking buddy hides in his heart.With control, wit, and brilliance, Michelle Berry explores the hidden depths between individuals, families, and communities. Dysfunctional characters create tension in situations where they teeter on the edge of life. Psychological or situational twists pop readers' eyes wide open and force them to pay attention. Berry uses rapid-fire dialogue to build tension and emotion. Despite the underlying dark tones, the stories carry life and hope, human kindness-and strangeness.Each story is a vivid snapshot of a raw moment in the lives of people at a crossroads. A married couple in the title story, "I Still Don't Even Know You," question the foundation of their relationship during a winter getaway. In "The Cat," a life of endless purgatory stretches before a newly-wed husband. The wives in "Five Old Crows," contemplate ways to pass the time ranging from murder to writing. And the title character in "Martin" drives around a boring country town with a shotgun in his car, his dissatisfaction with his empty life mounting as townspeople talk about recent mysterious murders.
Michelle Berry has been widely published in many Canadian literary magazines, national newspapers, and anthologies.
