A Book: Short Stories

Shari wrote a collection of short stories entitled Everything Life Has to Offer. It's available in print and ebook formats on the publisher's website as well as Amazon and Chapters-Indigo. A good idea would be to pick it up at an independent bookstore. In Toronto, check if there's a copy at Another Story, Type, or Book City. In New York, head to Bluestockings (172 Allen Street).

What They Said


"With shades of George Saunders and Etgar Keret, Shari Kasman's collection offers a sharp, sometimes eccentric, often hilarious vision of modern life. Don't let the chipper, chin-up naivete of her characters fool you; these are no Pollyanna stories. Inside each one lies a crystalline shard of understanding: of the desperation that crouches in the heart of every human, of the dizzying gap between what we want and what the world will give us."
-Anna Leventhal, author of Sweet Affliction

"The characters in Shari Kasman’s funny and perfectly off-kilter stories are naïve to a fault, but they’re all so sweetly sincere that I couldn’t help cheering on their bizarre pet projects and goofy aspirations and, especially, their fumbling efforts at connection with each other. Everything Life Has to Offer is a heart-melting read and a hell of a good time.”
-Jessica Westhead, author of And Also Sharks

“Whether it’s about a lucky radio contest winner who selects the DJ to accompany her on her prize trip or a surgery addict or a late whistler, the stories in Shari Kasman’s debut are little bursts of ribald joy and pure mischief. She delightfully ridicules the modern idiom in all its manifestations.”
–Jeff Parker, author of Where Bears Roam the Streets
