Product description


"Lambert pulls the reader in with deft and seamless prose, complex characters, insight into our often contradictory emotions, and the originality of her voice – a combination that results in an absorbing and vivid book." - Quill and Quire

"With one novel and two short-story collections to show for her fine work, Shaena Lambert is a nascent Canadian voice very deserving of our attention." – Globe and Mail

"What is most on display in all of the stories in Oh, My Darling is the succinct, explicit power of observation of the writer." – Vancouver Sun

"Lambert's exquisite prose and masterful story structure leaven the heavy content. Simply put, this volume's good (superb, actually) and good for you.." – Winnipeg Free Press

"Oh, My Darling is thunderstorm powerful, otherworldly, wickedly great. It lies beyond the range of merely astonishing. Shaena Lambert travels so deeply into the raw and beautiful reservoirs of humanity that it seems a marvel she ever made it back out. That she did is our most excellent fortune. Read this book. Read this book." – Rick Bass, author of The Watch and All The Land That Holds Us.

"Shaena Lambert's stories are jubilant, ironic, bone-marrow intimate and hyper-vivid. Her characters are drawn with signature accuracy and exuberance; they are bold and unfaithful, zealous and brave, fearful and true. Oh, My Darling is fist-pump marvellous. Lambert will take your heart captive." - Lisa Moore, author of February and Alligator

"Exceptional stories... a joy to read. Lambert's language and characters shine on every page." - Barbara Gowdy, author of Helpless and The White Bone
