Flood of the Century
A humorous short story collection about the lives of people living across Southern Alberta. Our hopes, our dreams, our failures. From a young man’s dream to one day compete in a Mr. Fitness pageant to a father who uses Tiger to teach his daughter how to be a winner on the golf course. From a trip to the supermarket treated as though it is a big game hunt in Africa to a short passionate romance in Cancun Mexico on Spring break. With a tone inspired by Stephen Leacock’s “Sunshine Sketches of a Small Town” and a style inspired by Hemingway, these stories show the lives of small town people with dreams and feelings as big as in any major city in the world.
