Lessons from a Nude Man

Lessons from a Nude Man, a short-fiction collection by Manitoba writer Donna Besel is the seventh title in the Strike Fire New Authors Series. Besel knows prairie landscape–how the frost looks like on a badly tended garden, how trees change one decade to the next and more importantly she has populated her stories with indelible characters. Lessons from a Nude Man captures both the comedy and absurdity in all levels of human relationships. Besel is a new voice with a strong and profound value, her stories are filled with wit and humor and incredible poignancy, she deftly reveals the everyday patterns that, over time, can swerve a life off course.
