New Paperback 9781845231699 Combining two volumes of short stories, this compilation bridges the gap between the earlier pieces of the author's previous array and the various and rich prose of a more recent collection. Presenting pungently written tales that confront the controversial issues of rape, abuse, and unsupported pregnancy, this compendium displays an acutely sensitive consciousness of the consequences behind the passage of time.
