Between expectations & reality

August 11th, 2021

Christopher Evans is set to publish his debut collection of short stories Nothing Could Be Further from the Truth (House of Anansi $22.99), due out February, 2022. He portrays people that are trapped between expectations – of who they think they are, who others think they are and who they want to be – and reality. His publisher writes “Resignation and reinvention are always a breath apart,” and that Evans’s characters “have fallen short of their dreams, and for others who never expected more.” Evans is a writer, editor and teacher whose work has appeared in EVENT, the Literary Review, and Best Canadian Poetry and has been shortlisted for the Commonwealth Short Story Prize. He lives in Vancouver with his partner and daughter. 9781487010331
