Nine to Ninety: Stories Across the Generations
Written in a rich variety of voices, the colourful narratives aim to entertain. They begin with a little girl's weekend in an artist's home, then shiver from a "Giant-Lady's" wintry farm, to summer dining in a mansion and a boy's exotic lunches on a neighbour's porch. A university student delights in her debonair "older man", a corporate executive rediscovers romance, an immigrant's daughter searches for a lost homeland, and women challenged by advancing years cope each in her unique way. Realistic, bizarre, funny, or touching, the stories in Nine to Ninety promise a potpourri of diverting reading.
