Product description


[T]he vividness of Coulter’s hard-luck characters and their situations commands attention. For the second half, Coulter changes tracks with two longer stories that experiment with tone, structure, and perspective. “The Smart Sisters” is a rollicking depiction of three struggling sisters.... “Limbo,” narrated by a “reluctant haunter” divided into six captivating tales that recount the decades after his death for those close to him. Gentle, comic, and uplifting, the story’s craft perfectly complements its humanity and skillfully closes this promising collection." [Full review at] (Publishers Weekly 2017-09-01)

# 1 on Edmonton Fiction Bestsellers list, September 24, 2017 (2017-09-24)

“… this collection reads a bit like a mystery novel with subtle connections between characters and stories…told intriguingly and effectively…” (Breanna Mroczek Avenue Magazine 2017-09-01)

The way Coulter uses the short story medium to loosely tie the collection together adds an enthralling quality... Coulter wanted to showcase that the things which tear us apart — depression, anger, death, suicide — are seldom talked about, or even written about... The Left-Handed Dinner Party ends on a note of fleeting happiness that alludes to a place of resolution." [Full article at] (Enrique Marroquin The Gateway 2018-03-06)
