Listing Detail Tabs

Here are 28 stories; 13 are by Frances, 15 by Annabel, but the joy of it is that they are interspersed (one by Annabel, two from Frances, three Annabel, two Frances...etc) in a way that gives the book spontaneity and thematic integrity but with plenty of variety. Each writer has her distinct style and both have plenty of variety, the voice fitted to each particular story. The stories are set in Italy, England, India, mostly here in New Zealand; in the fifties, the present and everything in between. Tales of single and partnered women, lesbian and not, parenthood, friendship, loss and death, murder, flirting, fidelity, betrayal - vignettes from the 'lives of girls and women' but with no preaching and a good deal of impishness. It's a mark of a good collection, that each story is un-entangled with the others while each feels as though it belongs to the whole.

This Paperback is in Excellent condition, except front cover is a wee bit scruffy as per photo, Printed 2010, 166 pages, 14cms x 19cms tall.
