On A Good Day

Gay Rubin


Gay Rubin weaves her stories with an eye for the complications, joys and ironies of everyday life. In this collection of short fiction, she explores the intricacies of close relationships between characters who come to life as believably as rain. What would one say to Paul Newman in the dry cleaners? How can a father's hearing loss shield him from his wife's infidelities? The humor is compelling, as it raises deep and fundamental questions--like, what is the meaning of family after all?--that linger long after the last page.

"These stories are finely and unobtrusively crafted--keenly observant, precisely articulated--and seen from a unique angle that makes possible a simultaneity of the comic and sad." (Stuart Dybek)

An award-winning fiction writer, Gay Rubin has had stories published in many literary journals, including "Iowa Woman," "Iris," "The Bridge" and "Metro Times." The Arts Foundation of Michigan awarded her an individual artist's grant in 1994. She has been editor and founder of "Michigan Hot Apples" (an annual literary anthology of poetry and fiction), past president of Detroit Women Writers, and writing instructor at University of Michigan. She is currently host and producer of a new cable TV interview program, "Writers' Roundtable," in Birmingham, Michigan, feature editor for "Cigar Lifestyles Magazine" and at work on a novel. Gay lives in Birmingham, Michigan, with her husband and two daughters.
