First Fiction Friday: Only If We’re Caught
Theressa Slind’s debut short story collection Only If We’re Caught (Thistledown Press) looks for the bizarre and extraordinary in the everyday. Humorous, playful, and especially versed in the human heart, Slind’s collection has been called “perceptive, thoughtful, smart, funny and beautiful” (Alice Kuipers).
X + YOnly if We’re Caught mixes the flair for the absurd of George Saunders with the deep insight into people’s interior lives of Alice Munro, and the flamboyant characters of Kevin Barry.
*Theressa Slind is a librarian at Saskatoon Public Library. Her writing has appeared in Prairie Fire, PRISM international, The Malahat Review, The New Quarterly, Grain, and elsewhere. She grew up on a grain farm in north-east Saskatchewan and lives in Saskatoon with her husband and daughter. Only If We’re Caught is her first book.
