More About This Book

Overview


Images and Other Stories is an eclectic collection of short stories with the common thread of exposing the sometimes stark reality of life that contrasts with our childhood illusions and the fa§ades ("Images") that people present in their everyday existence. Stories range from mystery to romance to Bildungsromans to suspense to psycho-social expos©s. Each of these stories reveals in different ways a basic truth: although as children most of us live in a fairytale world where good is rewarded, evil is punished, and people abide by the Golden Rule, maturity brings the stripping away of these innocent notions and the need to come to terms with the harsher truths of adulthood. Some of the topics we explore include discrimination, poverty, death, and selfishness. These stories are likely to speak to readers in a universal way because they deal with the difficult issues that all of us have or will experience during the course of our lives. At the same time, the stories are in themselves entertaining, fun and absorbing. Each story has its own unique atmosphere, with narrators of different ages, races, genders, occupations, and outlooks. Moreover, the stories have intriguing characters, interesting and well-researched sub-themes, and plot twists that often include a surprise ending!
