Dynamic, thought-provoking fiction that covers the business of living and loving in the 21st century! The lens is turned on communication, identity, infidelity, technology, rape, racism, love, desire, sex, regret, and more in this stimulating mix of insightful tales, as lived by a multicultural cast of American and sometimes unexpected characters. A totally original and unique bonus section titled Talkfest offers the author's lively,sometimes-hilarious views on the issues raised in the stories. These are presented as short essays meant to spur further reflection on the stories, and as a jumping off point for discussion between readers and the author.
