Clea Young


Clea Young is the Vancouver-based author of Teardown, a collection of short stories.





"Warren ignores the twinge of guilt at leaving Lola unattended on the beach. But what harm can possibly come to her on that sandy expanse? He fights through the waves, turtle rolls under incoming swells and feels their energy surge overhead, trying to rip the board from his hands. That’s all it is, all he is: energy, sometimes misguided and other times, like now, startlingly precise." 

Excerpt from "Ursa Minor" in Clea Young's debut story collection, Teardown, Freehand Books.
