Fall 2010

In December 2010, Wilde Press launched I Am Happy You Are Here.


I Am Happy You Are Here by Sean Van Deuren

Whether they are forgetting their girlfriend’s names, rekindling old flames, or lusting after someone else’s significant other, the characters in I Am Happy You Are here are far from perfect. But that’s life! The course of six relationships are changed for better or worse in Sean Van Deuren’s debut collection of short stories told with humor, tragedy, and a dash of absurdity.

Praise for I Am Happy You Are Here

“Perverse and endearing, these stories come to us from the land of the eternally awkward where good intentions are misinterpreted, clothes don’t quite fit, and everyone’s timing is a little off.” —Mike Heppner, author of The Egg Code and Pike’s Folly

“Sean’s stories are beautifully crafted, quirky, touching, tales of love and connection. You are immediately drawn to these imperfect characters and their search for each other and themselves.” —Eileen McBride, PhD, Professor of Psychology
