The Bed Book of Short Stories

The Bed Book Of Short Stories [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Bed Book of Short Stories by Lauri Kubuitsile,Joanne Hichens Book Resume:

The bed, dressed in hand sewn quilt or threadbare blanket, may in and of itself be memorable, but it is what happens in the bed - the sex and lovemaking, the dreams, the reading, the nightmares, the rest, giving birth and dying - which give 'bed' special meaning. Whether a bed is shared with a book, a child, a pet or a partner, whether lovers lie in ecstasy or indifference, whether 'bed' relates to intimacy or betrayal, it is memories and recollections of 'bed', in whatever form, which have triggered the writing of these thirty stories by women from southern Africa. Well known writers Joanne Fedler, Sarah Lotz, Arja Salafranca, Rosemund Handler and Liesl Jobson will delight, but you will discover here new writers from Botswana, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, Malawi, Namibia and Zambia, each with a unique voice as they cast light on the intimate lives of women living in this part of the world and the possibilities that are both available to and denied them. The BED BOOK of short stories - some quirky and tender, others traumatic or macabre - is the perfect companion to take to bed with you, to keep you reading long into the night.

Women In Their Beds

The Bed Book Of Short Stories [Pdf/ePub] eBook

Women In Their Beds by Gina Berriault Book Resume:

“In these 35 stories, one struggles to find a sentence that is anything less than jewel-box perfect.” —The New York Times Book Review Gina Berriault is known for the complexity and compassion with which she weaves her characters, and her stories are such models of economy that they seem almost telepathic. In this reissue of her collected stories—twenty years after its first publication—with a new introduction by renowned author and devoted Berriault advocate Peter Orner—we see the deft hand of this well-loved master of the short story at its best. Berriault employs her vital sensibility—sometimes subtly ironic and sometimes achingly raw—to touch on the inevitability of suffering and the nature of individuality, daring to see into the essence of our predicaments. What moves us? What dictates our behavior? What alters us? Her writing is spare, evanescent, pulsing with life and shimmering with life's strange hope. Her stories illustrate the depth of her emotional understanding. “Half the women in the world are right now in bed, theirs or somebody else's, whether it's night or day, whether they want to be or not...” With Women in Their Beds, Berriault's prose—moving, honest, and wise—achieves a mastery of the short story form that was in evidence every step of her long career. She was a completely modern writer, blessed with an exquisite sense of the potency of words and the ability to create moments of empathy that are both disturbing and mysteriously amusing.

The Bed Moved

The Bed Book Of Short Stories [Pdf/ePub] eBook

The Bed Moved by Rebecca Schiff Book Resume:

The audacious, savagely funny debut of a writer of razor-sharp wit and surprising tenderness: a collection of stories that gives us a new take on adolescence, death, sex, on being Jewish-ish, and on finding one's way as a young woman in the world. A New Yorker, trying not to be jaded, accompanies a cash-strapped pot grower to a "clothing optional resort" in California. A nerdy high-schooler has her first sexual experience at geology camp. On the night of her father's funeral, a college student watches an old video of her Bat Mitzvah, hypnotized by the image of the girl she used to be....Frank and irreverent, these stories offer a singular view of growing up (or not) and finding love (or not) in today's ever-uncertain landscape. How to form lasting connections in a world saturated by insincerity? How to transcend the indignities of middle school? How to build a strong sense of self while also trying to figure out online dating? In its bone-dry humor, its pithy observations, and its thrilling ability to unmask the most revealing moments of human interaction--no matter how fleeting--this collection announces a new talent to be reckoned with.

By now, the biggest employer in the area is the Billingham ICI chemical works which looms over the town, threatening a pollution which would later give Teessiders the unkind knick-name of Smoggies! As a child, Derek and his pals, Dennis and Micky, are cocooned from the adult world of work and life’s day-to-day drudgery. In a humorous and nostalgic way, some of Derek’s schooldays and childhood adventures with friends and family, are captured in eight short stories. Children will enjoy Derek’s tales. Adults will recall how much freer kids appeared to be, growing up in a, seemingly, more innocent world.
