Join Theressa Slind for the launch of Only If We're Caught and featuring a conversation with Leona Theis.
Only If We're Caught is a sensational debut collection of short stories that takes readers on a tour of the astonishment inside the ordinary, the quotidian.
In these stories, no narrator is too far-fetched, because every voice is in some way our own. We unravel a mystery with a mortician troubled by the ghosts of his clients, stumble along a gravel road with a too-young pregnant woman searching for a lost girl, watch a feminist falling in love with the office Romeo, are charmed by a robotic humanoid with a penchant for merlot and sedition. Theressa Slind takes us on an exhilarating ride through the many chambers of the complicated, messed up, resilient human heart.
