Lillian on Sunday
Stories of the Human Heart
Lillian on Sunday: Stories of the Human Heart is an elegant collection of highly entertaining, provocative short stories exploring the rich nature of human existence. From love stories to city fables to ghost stories, these illuminating tales are filled with engaging individuals coming face-to-face with the unexpected realities of life. Some of the stories are finely chiseled vignettes, ending with a gut punch. Others are insightful, intense character studies leaving the reader with a poignancy that lingers:
A lonely woman picks up a young and handsome stranger in a Montreal park and discovers there is more than meets the eye….a retired high school Latin teacher receives a cryptic note from a former student and is forced to face his past….a down on her luck ex-food critic in London cooks up a brilliant scheme to keep on eating for free….an anxious woman from Long Island tries hypnotherapy to get over her fear of flying and ends up taking the trip she will never forget….an actor’s ‘big night’ on Broadway goes horribly off script when an audience member tries to steal the show….
Lillian on Sunday takes the traditions of the classics and gives them a current, sophisticated twist. Charming, dark, and often wickedly humorous, these exquisitely crafted stories move, surprise and delight.
