Fish & novellas gotta swim

May 14th, 2016

Winter Wren by Theresa Kishkan, troche a novella set on Vancouver Island, has been released via her new imprint for novellas called Fish Gotta Swim Editions. In 1974, in the disrupted midst of her life as a painter in France, Grace Oakden comes home to Canada and buys a cabin on a west coast beach. A friendship with the dying, embittered son of a famous artefact collector, and an affair with a local potter working in the Bernard Leach tradition, buttress her awakening engagement with a chosen place and a discovered purpose: to paint the view at dusk. 978-0-9780054-5-0 $18
