StorieseBook - 2014
Winner of the 1992 Authors Award for Paperback Fiction, Fever was also nominated for a Commonwealth Award. Like Real Life, Sharon Butala's newest collection of short fiction, it is a collection of short stories that reveals the secret inner lives of women and men, skillfully peeling back their defenses to expose crystallizing moments of joy, pain, fear and guiltless pleasure. In "Fever," a woman whose husband suddenly becomes deathly ill finds herself in the midst of a torrid affair, unable to confront her true feelings about a marriage past its prime. Sharon Butala infuses Fever with an intensity of emotion that often catches its readers off-guard, making for a reading experience that is always honest and powerful.
