Über diesen Titel:


The stories in this debut collection about young urbanites raise more questions than answers. Questions about desire, heartbreak, hope, madness, physical scars and emotional healing, the delirium of romance and the fleetingness of youth.


Twenty Questions--A Collection of Short and Very Short Stories is a vivid landscape of young adulthood near the millenium's end--a time when the only certain thing is uncertainty. Without a roadmap, the men and women in these stories struggle to navigate the multilane highway of human existence, their paths intersecting in ways that are both tragic and comic, heart-rending and sublime.

These stories pose unspoken questions, and leave many unanswered for the reader to ponder. More important than answers are the reactions and solutions found--sometimes wise, and sometimes unsound--by the characters who inhabit Twenty Questions. These are the people we've met, and think we know. They're people whose lives are sometimes orderly, and sometimes chaotic, and like the stories we find them in, they are people who can't be easily summarized or reduced to stereotypes. Focusing on the characters in these stories, Twenty Questions points out just how different our lives can be even though our emotions are common.

Though the stories focus in particular on young people finding themselves in unique and sometimes peculiar situations, Twenty Questions reminds us that we are all making our way in the world, continually facing the surprising strangeness of a new day.
