About A Few Kinds of Wrong
Mechanic Jennifer Collins is a woman in a man’s world, but since her father’s sudden death her world has been falling apart. Now she’s in a losing battle, risking everything to cling to the past while everyone else moves forward.
In A Few Kinds of Wrong, Tina Chaulk takes us into the garage and tells the poignant story of Jennifer, her pain, her loves, and her coming to terms with reality. Above all, this story reminds us that memories — those one cannot forget and others one battles to hold onto — can never be controlled.
A book like this is the reason people read.
-Joan Sullivan, The Telegram
“Tina Chaulk has a talent for getting inside the always quirky and often perverse sensibility of her protagonist, a young woman coming to terms with flawed memories, misunderstood relationships and a reinterpretation of family history.”
-Bernice Morgan, award-winning author of Cloud of Bone and Random Passage
“Gut-painful and gut-funny, A Few Kinds of Wrong takes us down a journey of loss, deception, self-destruction and love. Chaulk writes deftly of the hilarity and pathos of being human, of faults and failures, of suffering and joy. Palpable characters and solid storytelling.”
-Michelle Butler Hallett, author of Double-blind and Sky Waves
