Shalom Camenietzki’s short story collection details the fractal nature of the self as seen through the flaws and assets of the characters that stoically inhabit his pages. Each tale examines the rough edges of misguided obsession: an unrequited love affair with the nanny, the perils of a competitive look-a-like, the numbing indignity of going the wrong way on the corporate ladder. Fixated, let down, disappointed, enraged, and confounded by the shackles of their own consciences, Camenietzki’s characters unburden secrets and force the reader to bear witness to their "dark nights of the soul." This is the place where the boundaries blur between religious fervour and lewd advance, money and mental illness, accident and destiny.


About the Author:

Shalom Camenietzki was born in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, raised in Israel, educated in the US, where he earned a doctorate of psychology, and now resides in Toronto, Ontario. Inspired by writers such as Chekhov and the Brazilian Graciliano Ramos, Camenietzki studied creative writing at the University of Toronto and his writing has been widely published in Canada. The Atheist’s Bible is his first collection of stories.
