Item Description...
Whether from established authors or by writers new to fiction, the short stories in this volume explore life as change, using Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 as the lens.

The writers come from different backgrounds, perspectives, and levels of familiarity with the short story, but what ties them together is a willingness to creatively explore the raw and more uncomfortable dimensions of life--big events and small happenings--all bound up by a recognition of the inevitability and (dis)comfort of change. Each writer has a story to tell, a creative and imaginative angle on life as it happens somewhere to someone.

Life Sentences represents an experiment, a recognition of and confrontation with the depth of culture and culture's life maps, with the ways in which the joys and troubles of life are given meaning. This collection attempts to address these large (and small) challenges and dynamics of life without the jargon of the professional philosopher or theologian but with the more earthy language of popular culture: the short story.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
I would definitely recommend this book!  Jun 12, 2008
I really enjoyed this collection of short stories. Each story is told from a unique perspective and touches on aspects of relationships: friendship, love, betrayal, etc. The book is divided into three sections The Preparation, The Journey and The Crossroad with 16 stories in all. Stories such as "Dead Canadian Girlfriend" and "Jack & Jill" are pretty humorous - both have unusual premises and feature sharp, witty prose. On the other hand, "Indira Shaves her Legs" and "S" are more introspective. I particularly enjoyed the stories in the third section - but I would recommend starting from the beginning and reading the stories in order. The diversity of voices from each story is what brings this collection together. I would definitely recommend this book!
