A Box of Chocolates: A Collection of Short Stories
A box of 18 chocolates; each on carefully made, painstakingly wrapped and methodically packed. Each chocolate with a unique taste, each one representing a different story. In the box, sits a plethora of colours, a myriad of aspirations, a landscape of experiences.
A Box of Chocolates is a collection of short stories that transports the reader into the lives of various individuals, trapped in different psycho-social situations, who require serendipity and a touch of the spiritual in order to obtain freedom.
It travels across the fields of love, hatred, oppression, corruption, homosexuality, AIDS, rebellion, spiritualism, slavery, migration, life and ultimately death as it seeks to capture in one snapshot the reality of the helplessness of man when confronted with the unpredictable nature of Fate.
Borrowing from Shakespeare "All the world is a stage. And all the men and women merely players. They have their exits and entrances; each man in his time plays many parts." This in itself captures the essence of this collection.
