Safe World Gone: Short Stories by Women from Wales
Patricia Duncker, Janet Thomas
Honno, Jan 1, 2007 - English fiction - 217 pages
The moment that changes a life could be strange or ordinary, small or shocking: a tramp at a train station; a red dress in a department store window; visiting an ex-lover; stealing a car; or knocking on the wrong door. In these 28 stories that are by turns funny, touching, and scary, Welsh women authors explore the turning points—the key decisions, the mistakes, the victories, or perhaps the roads not taken—that can change a woman's life forever.
