Alone A Love Story by Michelle Parise

“Alone: A Love Story is an emotional memoir of a life exploded — the end of a marriage, referred to as The Bomb — and the chaos that follows. But it's also about what blooms in the wreckage. Beautifully written, intimate, alive and accessible, the story flows like a conversation with your most interesting, wise and exciting friend.” — Emily Urquhart, author of Beyond the Pale

Hello Canada,

 

My novel, A Strange Kind of Comfort, was accepted by Dundurn Press in October 2018. As a first-time author, I was thrilled, yet I soon had doubts about what I’d gotten myself into. Did I really want my words and thoughts out in the world for everyone to ponder, analyze, and criticize? But I told myself I was finally fulfilling a life-long dream and I settled into the awesome journey, learning about publication with the incredible editors and staff at Dundurn.  

When I began writing my first book, Polyamorous, all the stories people in consensually non-monogamous relationships shared intrigued me.

Over the course of a year-and-a-half, I interviewed more than 50 polyamorists across Canada, hearing about their joys, heartbreak, discoveries and challenges. Some of the most interesting experiences, in my opinion, stem from trying to fit within the legal system that’s seemingly intended for couples only.

Another saying most of us are very familiar with is “easier said than done” and if you’re in the middle of a messy break up you already know shedding that dead weight can seem impossible — but it isn’t.
