Schoemperlen uses items of clothing—Blue Cotton Sweatshirt, Yellow Evening Gown, Brown Cashmere Sweater—to tell a wrenching story of domestic abuse and cover-up, and the road to healing.
The stories in Red Plaid Shirt span twenty years of Diane Schoemperlen’s challenging and innovative writing. Told in her fresh and often deadpan comedic voice, they offer a compulsively readable mix of deeply felt emotion and finely wrought intellect. This collection was shortlisted for the Upper Canada Brewing Company Writers’ Craft Award.
