In this strangely endearing, wonderfully whimsical, and exquisitely hilarious collection of stories, life offers a free trip for two to Ethiopia and an imported cat, a pool of vegan gravy and an Internet Elvis wedding officiant, a confetti machine and a potentially life-changing hot tub. Everything Life Has to Offer is like nothing you've encountered and it’s just what you've been looking for. Prepare to be amazed.

Shari Kasman is a writer, multidisciplinary artist, and musician. Her work has been shown in public space and private space, but not outer space. Her writing has appeared in publications including Joyland, Taddle Creek, and This Magazine. She lives in Toronto.

“Kasman’s collection offers a sharp, sometimes eccentric, often hilarious vision of modern life. Don’t let the chipper, chin-up naivete of her characters fool you; these are no Pollyanna stories. Inside each one lies a crystalline shard of understanding: of the desperation that crouches in the heart of every human, of the dizzying gap between what we want and what the world will give us.”—Anna Leventhal, author of Sweet Affliction

“The characters in Shari Kasman’s funny and perfectly off-kilter stories are naïve to a fault, but they’re all so sweetly sincere that I couldn’t help cheering on their bizarre pet projects and goofy aspirations and, especially, their fumbling efforts at connection with each other. Everything Life Has to Offer is a heart-melting read and a hell of a good time.”—Jessica Westhead, author of And Also Sharks

“Whether it’s about a lucky radio contest winner who selects the DJ to accompany her on her prize trip or a surgery addict or a late whistler, the stories in Shari Kasman’s debut are little bursts of ribald joy and pure mischief. She delightfully ridicules the modern idiom in all its manifestations.”—Jeff Parker, author of Where Bears Roam the Streets
