From Our Editors

Lois Braun has a skill most people -- and most authors -- could only hope of having: she understands basic human nature and behaviour. Her haunting prose combined with her skill at creating everyday characters results in an infinitely engaging and rewarding read. Braun’s short story collection The Pumpkin-Eaters is packed with irony, her intuitive sense about people and her gift for portraying the small dramas that subtly change people’s lives.
