In the style of The Girls' Guide to Hunting and Fishing, interconnected stories about a restless and charming young woman looking for meaning and love.

Elly Fisher is searching for her place in the world and for the love of her life. Leading us through these 10 interconnected stories, Elly links one intimate tale to the next as she drifts through Europe, sleeps with a married man, tangles with a roommate from hell, creates a stir on a cattle ranch in Colorado, answers singles ads from a Seattle newspaper, and more.

Clever and original, Kusel offers readers a kaleidoscopic perspective of a young woman's life, told from many points of view and in the voices of several related characters. Each of the stories build upon one another to create an effect like that of a novel. What shines through is Elly's delightfully unique journey of self-discovery. Other Fish in the Sea is an intricate, involving, disarmingly funny, and powerfully personal work, in the tradition of Alice Munro and Lorrie Moore.

Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

"During her drive home she smiled out the rolled-down window of the car, her hair whipping back. Tom had walked her to her car, and promised to call the phone number on the scrap of paper she handed him. After a perfunctory hug, he moved his mouth to her face and gave her the slightest kiss about a millimeter shy of her lips. Her mother came into the bathroom while she was washing up. 'He's smart and handsome and into animals and, oh man, what a body,' she said to her mother's reflection in the bathroom mirror. ‘Just be careful, sweetheart,' her mother warned as she closed the door and left Elly to brush her teeth. ‘You just met him and already you're planning your wedding. Just don't get your hopes up so much.'" --from Other Fish in the Sea
