twenty three and twenty four

23. Don't know how many community members are familiar with Pauline Melville. Her novel The Ventriloquist's Tale is stellar. She is the author of short story 23 entitled "The Parrot and Descartes" which is hilarious. Her account of history through the thoughts of the title parrot is beyond entertaining. LOVED IT!!


24. Much more serious in tone and deeply tragic is Pamela Mordecai's "Blood". It is a story of two brothers that remain of four. And the end gives the chilling reminder that history repeats itself with the death of innocents who "don't" matter.



As it is required... these stories are from Stories from Blue Latitudes
