Hemingway once said, "There is nothing to writing. All you do is sit at a typewriter and bleed." That may be true, but a bottle of wine won’t hurt, and that is essentially what’s to be found in this slim volume of unique and powerful stories and parables. Author Pae Veo explores the life lessons to be learned in his often-Kafkaesque realms: isolation, failure, addiction, moral dilemmas and the absurdities of everyday life. In places where hope rarely ventures, imagination usually does; take it lightly, and drink as much as necessary—but by all means, excuse the blood.

Searching for Marilyn Monroe: Parables and other Animals

SKU: 001
  • After camping for eight years without a tent and spending time in a little town outside of Detroit, Pae returned to Alberta and studied literature and philosophy at Mt. Royal and St. Mary’s University.
    He has published a collection of short stories titled Searching for Marilyn Monroe, and a short novel, The Pérelin Decline.
    Though he has lived most of his life in B.C. and Alberta, he has recently, as of last month, moved to Montreal. He is currently working on multiple projects with the hope of having at least one of them see the light of day.
