Being Normal.


'Being Normal' is about everyday people and everyday situations, with short stories that stand alone as melancholy, reflective and thoughtful musings of what it is to be human and come alive as a celebration of 'Being Different' as they sit side by side on the printed page.

Shieber tells the tales of self-harm, death, domestic violence and the overwhelming desire to be a super-hero with a potent mix of lightness of touch and a sprinkling of dark humour, which invites you to sit at the window to these characters- all of whom undoubtedly mirror the concerns, hopes, dreams and fears of each and every one of us- in a state of empathetic understanding.

A great book to dip in and out of as a holiday read, and an even better one to keep your thoughts mulling over about ourselves and each other long after the summer tan fades.
