L.E.K.’s novel-in-stories, “Seasonal Roads” will be published by Wayne State University in Spring of 2016!

        “Seasonal Roads is a novel-in-stories that examines the lives of three women, representing three generations of a family that resides in Upper Peninsula of Michigan. Each chapter reads as though it is a short story that could stand on its own (several have already been published in literary magazines and quarterlies). Lynn Fay (L. E. Kimball) employs a nonlinear approach to each chapter, allowing the narratives to roam freely in time, thus granting the reader keen insights into the past, present, and future—and in some instances into a speculative mode in which we see what might have been or might yet come into being. The language throughout is hauntingly lyrical. Some of the best passages describe aspects of Michigan’s natural domain, and the lives of these three women—the hardships as well as the pleasures they experience—are intricately bound to the Upper Peninsula. Seasonal Roads is an abundant, subtle, and sensual depiction of life in the Upper Peninsula.”
