Univers Parallele and Other Short Stories
Soft Editions, Feb 1, 2004 - 124 pages
'Univers Parallele' is an exciting collection of short stories which will lead you through the full gamut of emotions, from sadness and despair to hope and joy. In 'The Flying Carpet' and 'Univers Parallele' you enter a nebulous reality, which will make you question what is and what is not, while 'Composting' and 'Venus' provoke a truly cathartic experience. 'Margaret' and 'Recycling' offer a glimmer of light at the end of the existential tunnel of life, reminding you of the wonder of simply being alive.This is a delightful collection of tales. From the magical to the mundane, they look at how we live our lives and how we deal with what it throws at us. The characters are believable, unforgettable and even enviable! The writer is Scottish but his is a world view: no matter what language we speak or where we live, we are all touched by the same human hopes, dreams and tragedies.
