Featured Book: We Could Be Like That Couple by Sarah Steinberg

Insomniac Press, 2008

A first year university student has a psychic relationship with her linguistics professor. An adolescent ballerina with a salt addiction re-imagines her life. A bookstore manager explains the fine art of stocking to a new employee.

These are some of the scenarios explored in We Could Be Like That Couple — Sarah Steinberg's first collection of fiction. At once poignant, charming, and peculiar, this is an important and exhilarating debut. Steinberg has achieved a rare feat for a first book: a collection that exhibits narrative range, intellectual prowess and sharp wit.

Sarah Steinberg was born in Toronto and received her B.A. from Concordia University in Montreal. She is an amateur designer, dilettante stop-motion animator, imaginary comedy writer, and all-round very mysterious lady. Her stories have appeared in THIS magazine and Matrix.
