Overview

And now they were waiting for her to say something.


“I’ve slept with him,” she said.


Annabelle Benjamin had a voice that you don’t easily ignore. It wasn’t masculine, like her eighth grade tormentors liked to point out, not really, but it did have a grainy huskiness to it that you would have expected from a smoker far beyond her years; it had a timbre she figured she must have inherited from her father. Maybe you could pretend you didn’t hear, but when she said something you did hear.


And they heard her.


Into this vacuum she added, “He wasn’t that special.”


Lois almost said something, but whatever had occurred to her turned to nervous giggle instead. She turned from Annabelle and looked at the others, at Vivica, at Dorothy and at Heather in turn, should she believe her ears? Then back at Annabelle.

Meet the Author

Ulf is a Swedish name that once meant Wolf. So, yes, Wolf Wolf, that’s me.

I was born Ulf Ronnquist one snowy night in late October, in one of those northern Swedish towns that are little more than a clearing in the forest.

Fast forward through twenty Swedish years, ten or so English ones, and another twenty-four in the US and you’ll find me in front of an immigrations officer conducting the final citizenship interview, at the end of which he asks me, “What name would you like on your passport?”

And here I recall what a friend had told me, that you can pick just about any name you want at this point, and I heard me say “Ulf Wolf.”

That’s how it happened. Scout’s honor.

Of course, I had been using Ulf Wolf as a pen name for some time before this interview, but I hadn’t really planned to adopt that as my official U.S. name. But I did.

I have written stories all my life. Initially in Swedish, but for the last twenty or so years in English. To date I have written six novels, four novellas and two scores of stories; along with many songs and poems.

My writing focus these days is on life’s important questions (in my view): Who are we? What are we doing here? And how do we break out of this prison?
