A life’s work is always unfinished and requires creativity till the day a person dies.

From The Paper Garden:  Mrs. Delany Begins Her Life’s Work at 72 by Molly Peacock.

Molly’s newest book is Alphabetique: 26 Characteristic Fictions, available in Canada on November 18, 2014.

From the book’s dust jacket:

Take the sumptuousness of Molly Peacock’s bestselling The Paper Garden and the cat-nip-for-language appeal of Eats, Shoots and Leaves, then wrap it around tales rich with wisdom and humanity, and voilà: Alphabetique, the most gorgeous gift book of the season.
Molly Peacock has written a new classic, a book of magical tales inspired by the lives of the letters of the alphabet. Alphabetique: 26 Characteristic Fictions is one-of-a-kind, but nevertheless fits perfectly with Molly Peacock’s body of work, drawing on the same wellsprings of creativity and artistry as her poetry and her nonfiction, especially The Paper Garden. These 26 charming, incisive, sensual stories of love, yearning, and self-discovery are complimented by Kara Kosaka’s layered, jewel-bright collages, four of which are featured on this page.Order from Chapters Indigo (or, if you must, Amazon.ca) here. Available November 18, 2014.
