Abstract:

Abstract: Women these days play many different roles. One could say that it is the sign of the time but despite the advances that our foremothers had made, the women of this decade are working harder than ever. In this collection of stories, the protagonist is one of these modern women, and she goes through many stages of her life. In her quest for a peaceful place in an often violent, unpredictable, and sadistic world, she faces many challenges; and she finds that love, sex, betrayal, fear, and desire are inevitably the basis for any friendship, whether platonic or romantic. Two of the stories, "The Neighbor-woman on the Balcony" and "The Love of Men and Women" are part of a cycle. The rest of the collection, are stand-alone pieces, but they are intrinsically connected by mature, ordinary love.
