Book Description HTML  |   Report this book

Some events in life are like tiny seeds that take root and blossom in a writer's imagination to produce a story. To him the stories are almost true, though they are not. "A Peculiar Arrangement" tells the story of a peculiar sexual alliance between aunt and nephew to solve a peculiar existential problem. "Makis Finds His Whistle" is a story where sexual senility in a man brings on obsessions of cuckoldry. "Youthful Yearnings" narrates the yearnings of a young dress designer for his model and the consummation that almost takes place thirty five years later. "Sisi" is a tale of another passionate obsession for a woman that glows unabated for a lifetime. "The Spaceship" has less to do with science fiction than relationships between people, especially one between a father and a daughter.
