“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 ofÂ Sweet Affliction
“The characters in Shari Kasman’s funny and perfectly off-kilter stories are naÃ¯ve 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.Â Everything Life Has to OfferÂ is a heart-melting read and a hell of a good time.”—Jessica Westhead, author ofÂ 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 ofÂ Where Bears Roam the Streets
