Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Gut-painful and gut-funny, A Few Kinds of Wrong takes us down a journey of loss, deception, self-destruction and love. Chaulk writes deftly of the hilarity and pathos of being human, of faults and failures, of suffering and joy. Palpable characters and solid storytelling.
-Michelle Butler Hallett, author of Double-blind and Sky Waves

"I enjoyed A Few Kinds of Wrong, a book that engages the reader in a subject rarely treated in modern fiction — the shattering, unreasoned grief of a daughter when her beloved father dies. Tina Chaulk has a talent for getting inside the always quirky and often perverse sensibility of her protagonist, a young woman coming to terms with flawed memories, misunderstood relationships and a reinterpretation of family history."
-Bernice Morgan, award-winning author of Cloud of Bone and Random Passage

"It is good solid stuff with unexpected yet authentic twists, and people you are interested in. A book like this is why people read."
-Joan Sullivan, The Telegram

"There were times when I felt like giving Jennifer a shake. By the time I closed the book, however, having witnessed Jennifer begin to untangle herself from the shackles of her oh-so-human faults, my emotions had changed. I'd grown fond of Jennifer, p'raps even begun to love her a little, and not just because she could fix my car.
-Harold Walters, The Southern Gazette

"One of Chaulk's strengths as a writer is her descriptive ability... Another strength of Chaulk's is her ability to create realistic characters... A Few Kinds of Wrong is funny, poignant, and has a sense of desperation, a need to fix things, that many of us feel at times in our lives."
-Sharon Hunt, The Chronicle Herald

"One of Chaulk's strengths as a writer is her descriptive ability... Another strength of Chaulk's is her ability to create realistic characters... A Few Kinds of Wrong is funny, poignant, and has a sense of desperation, a need to fix things, that many of us feel at times in our lives."
-Sharon Hunt, The Chronicle Herald

"It's the story of a flawed but ultimately likable young woman. It's simultaneously painful and funny to watch Jennifer cope with her life. Funny because Chaulk has the gift of summarizing the human condition in a few words words, and painful for the same reason."
-Jean Graham, Northeast Avalon Times

"The plot plays out loud like a script, with most of the characters coming to life through dialogue. A Few Kinds of Wrong is gut wrenching and sarcastic, balanced with true life."
-Gina Gill The Current
