Synopsis:

After winning a literary prize, George Barrett is pulled from obscurity and into the spotlight. When the attention impedes his ability to write, George buys an old house that once belonged to a writer he admires, intending to shut himself away and write in peace. Instead, he finds himself part of a small community, never quite alone, and writing a novel that is drastically unlike what he had once thought it would be.

Fever is a collection of sixteen short stories that reveal the secret inner lives of women and men, skilfully peeling back their defenses to expose crystallizing moments of joy, pain, fear, and guiltless pleasure. Sharon Butala infuses Fever with an intensity of emotion that often catches readers off guard, making for a reading experience that is always honest and powerful.
