From Our Editors

Lois Braun has a talent most people, especially writers, long for: she understands basic human nature and behaviour. Her haunting prose combined with her skill in creating everyday characters results in an infinitely engaging read. Packed with irony, Braun’s short story collection A Stone Watermelon reflects her intuitive sense about people and her gift for portraying the small dramas that subtly change people’s lives.
