Abstract

In these authentic and descriptive tales, Lucia Nevai quietly portrays the lives of a cross section of our times: a reconstituted stepfamily struggling to put down new roots, self-destructive women caught in unfulfilling relationships with men, rural dwellers evoking the basic desires and pains of their unchanging but nevertheless eventful lives.
