Geneva is a 62-year-old woman for whom love is a lesson.
Paris is a 29-year-old man for whom love is a feat.
Tatum is a 34-year-old woman for whom love is a tragedy.
But because love is none of these things, none know love.
Over the course of four seasons in Southwestern Montana, all of that will change.
A poetic journey through the landscape of the human heart, reminiscent of the work of Alice Munro and Richard Ford, SHAKING OUT THE DEAD is a novel that will take residence in your soul.

“K.M. Cholewa is a muscular writer. Everyone will find a character to identify with in SHAKING OUT THE DEAD and it won’t be the same for everyone. Read it with a friend. Read it in a book group. You’ll want to talk about it. Cholewa’s writing is hard to put down. Praise for a strong voice in literature!”
– Leah Joki, author of Juilliard to Jail
“Tight, implacable, penetrating, honest. Sometimes, because they have to, the characters flinch, but never the prose…This is a brave and ambitious book.”
– Mark Costello, author of The Murphy Stories
“I highly recommend this novel to anyone daring to meet this wonderful cast of characters and fall into their world that is as rich as the real one we live in.”
– Literarily Illumined
“SHAKING OUT THE DEAD is a meditative work of dramatic fiction, often compared to the work of Alice Munro (and rightly so), that will remain in readers’ hearts long after the last tear-stained page is turned! Cholewa is a writer to watch and relish very carefully now and in the future! This reviewer believes Cholewa stands in a unique place as a contemporary fiction author! Highly recommended!”
