CAROUSEL and Other Stories by Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold Release Date February 23, 2016   ISBN 978-0-9971898-3-4


This collection of nine short stories explores scenes from a long marriage – the highs and lows of loving, working, living to the fullest, the memories of youth, the turbulence of crises, the promises kept, and dreams sometimes unfulfilled. Set in diverse locales from Saratoga Springs to Toronto, New York to London, and Calabria to Mont St. Michel, Carousel invites the reader to come aboard for a ride through the richness of memory. In this, her fourth work of fiction, author Carla Maria Verdino-Süllwold creates warm, often ironic, always poignant portraits of Baby Boomers in their journeys from youth to increasing age. As if on a carousel, the characters spin through time discovering that life may not be linear after all.

Three Stories from this collection have also been anthologized: Leonardo . . on the Beach and A Grain of Sand won honorable mention in the American Short Fiction Contest  and appeared in Ni Bona Na Coroin 2014, and Abschied will appear in Woof 2015, both anthologies from Grey Wolfe Publishing.

The wedding that turns feast into fiasco; the childhood games that foreshadow life’s realities; dreams of romance shattered and reborn; professional and creative identities forged, challenged, and affirmed; farewells presaged and paid – these eight poetic and poignant stories, reflected through the prism of love and loss, ultimately offer the reader epiphanies of renewal.

. . . A fine collection, her best so far with a command of dialogue, flashbacks handled gracefully and seamlessly, and stream-of-consciousness very un-self-conscious. – (Donna Pucciani, Hanging Like Hope on the Equinox & other volumes)
