Short Stories About Us
by Carine Fabius

Overview


If world peace is the dish we want to create, romantic relationships serve as cauldron, where the ingredients for meaningful interaction first come together. While Short Stories About Us does not pretend to advance the cause of world peace, it does present another opportunity for people to learn about themselves and fellow planetary travelers through the prism of issues explored in this multicultural stew of stories and discussion pieces.

Description


Dynamic, thought-provoking fiction that covers the business of living and loving in the 21st century! The lens is turned on communication, identity, infidelity, technology, rape, racism, love, desire, sex, regret, and more in this stimulating mix of insightful tales, as lived by a multicultural cast of American and sometimes unexpected characters. A totally original and unique bonus section titled "TalkFest" offers the author's lively, sometimes hilarious views on the issues raised in the stories. These are presented as short essays meant to spur further reflection on the stories, and as a jumping-off point for online discussion between readers and the author.

"Carine Fabius writes about relationships in a timely, trenchant and poignant manner. Her metaphorical stories about the sun and the moon, a violin and a saxophone, and a tomato and a carrot made me think about the characters from my show and how real they felt to people. It is a beautiful thing!"

                             Craig Plestis, U.S. Creator/Executive Producer, The Masked Singer
