by Margaret Brisco

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
In her latest collection of short stories, Margaret Brisco explores the idea of life as a series of transformations. Characters change and are changed by the people and circumstances they encounter. Many wake up and discover that things are not as they once were and they must adapt to a new reality.
Margaret Brisco's collection of short stories is set against the relationship between an older woman, Norma, and a younger one, Celeste. Through their relationship the stories of Norma's life come up. The stories in Metamorphoses run the gamut from Norma's own life to examining the memories of different women, and even wondering where one's home is, and where one belongs.
About the author
Born in Trieste, Italy, Margaret Brisco graduated from Facolta di Medicina e Chirurgia in Padova, Itasly. She practiced obstetrics and gynecology in northern New Jersey for 35 years and was a pioneer at a time when few women became physicians and even fewer undertook specialties involving surgery. Since her retirement from medicine in 1996, she has devoted herself to writing. Metamorphoses is her second book of short stories. Her first book, Women in Transition, was published in 2004 and won the 2005 New Jersey Notable Book Award presented by the New Jersey Center for the Book. She is also the author of Childbirth: A Unique Experience, published in 1988.
