9781742584270: An Unknown Sky: And Other Stories

Susan Midalia's second collection of short stories offers a compelling variety of characters, all of them 'travellers' in search of connection and belonging, including: tourists in Moscow and Vienna confronted by the weight of history * a young student teacher discovering her capacity for compassion * a teenage boy defending his mother's reputation * a brother anguished by his sister's illness * a widow infatuated with a troubled young man. Written with eloquence, grace, and emotional generosity, the stories in this collection seek to understand people rather than to judge them, inviting the reader to reflect on the longings and regrets that make up who we are. Susan Midalia's stories are about ordinary people and the secrets and fears that lie beneath the cracked veneer of domesticity and suburban complacency.
