0 Reviews

“On Monday I decided to change my life.” In Schoemperlen’s addictive tale, Cynthia gives up all constructs of modern life except her yoghurt maker and cappuccino machine, and starts a personal revolution.

The stories in Red Plaid Shirt span twenty years of Diane Schoemperlen’s challenging and innovative writing. Told in her fresh and often deadpan comedic voice, they offer a compulsively readable mix of deeply felt emotion and finely wrought intellect. This collection was shortlisted for the Upper Canada Brewing Company Writers’ Craft Award.
