Anne Fleming is the author of the critically acclaimed novel, Anomaly, as well as Pool-Hopping and Other Stories, which was shortlisted for the Governor-General’s Award, the Ethel Wilson Fiction Prize, and the Danuta Gleed Award. Three of the stories in her latest collection, Gay Dwarves of America (Pedlar 2012), have won National Magazine Awards, and the title story was shortlisted for the Journey Prize. She divides her time between Vancouver and Kelowna, where she teaches at UBC’s Okanagan campus.
“Gay Dwarves of America
… showcases a writer who’s clearly an able hand with conventional short story form and yet confident enough for charged experimentation. While Fleming’s stories are often funny and quirky, they are also adept at exposing quiet truths about the complexity of friendship, love, and family.”
