Cages and Other Stories
Lulu.com, 2006 - 124 pages
A couple attempt to recapture a lost relationship but their memories disintegrate the world about them...A widow tries to understand the brutality of her husband's death...Three soldiers confront the image of man's struggle with his own aggression...A writer finally begins to understand the frailty of words.Often stark, often brutal, often hopeful, these stories find lives falling apart under the strain of entrapment but also celebrate the pleasurable cages that we wilfully and inevitably impose upon ourselves.
