Oh My Darling by Shaena Lambert

Last week, I attended the launch of a new book of short stories by Vancouver writer Shaena Lambert. It was a thrill to hear her read from the title story, which I read when it was published recently in the Walrus.

The book has been published under the new editorial imprint of veteran Canadian editor Patrick Crean.

It was lovely to connect with fellow writers and see how many people packed the launch at Cory Weeds's Cellar Jazz Club on West Broadway.

The day I met Shaena at the Writers' Studio, I developed an immediate rapport with her when I found in her a fellow fan of Ford Madox Ford.

Shaena's latest book was reviewed by Steven Brown in the Vancouver Sun, and has also been reviewed by Quill and Quire. Lambert's former short story collection is called The Falling Woman, and she has also published a novel, Radiance.
