Don\'t Try This at Home

Don't Try This at Home

Rob Krause and Daria Salamon sold their car, rented out their Winnipeg home, and packed up their two young children to embark on a 12-month journey around the world. In this dual retelling of their ambitious year away from home, Don't Try This at Home chronicles the hilarious and sensational misadventures of a Canadian family as they travel across 15 different countries in the southern hemisphere. In an honest reflection on parenting, marriage, and living for a year on a tight budget, Krause and Salamon take readers through some of the world’s most stunning vistas while meeting the challenges of foreign customs, broken-down buses, stomach bugs, personal loss, and their often less-than-enthusiastic children.

All That Belongs

All That Belongs

Catherine, an archivist, has spent decades committed to conserving the pasts of others, only to find her own resurfacing on the eve of her retirement. Carefully, she mines the failing memories of her aging mother to revive a mysterious Uncle and relive the tragic downfall of her brother. Catherine remembers, and in the process, discovers darker family secrets, long silenced, and their devastating aftermath. Spanning decades between rural Alberta and Winnipeg, All That Belongs is an elegant examination of our own ephemeral histories, the consequences of religious fanaticism, and the startling familial ties—and shame—that bind us.

Grandmother, Laughing

Grandmother, Laughing

Until she met Obrum Kehler, serious Sarah Sudermann had never laughed. Her mother said she always reached for the black things first. But then Obrum looked at her with his robin’s egg eyes and red paint on his nose.

And then there was the lawnswing . . . and the piano. Not practical. Not necessary. But with Beethoven Blatz’s arrival everything is in place for the Kehler family to make great music together.

Full of love, longing, and tenderness, Grandmother, Laughing is a story about an unconventional family and the lengths we will go to find fulfillment for ourselves and the ones we cherish.
