About this title


In marriage there are ties that bind, yet sometimes the ties can chafe - and strangle. These stories reach into the darker sides of human nature - incest, illegitimacy, rejection, resentment - exposing the joy and pain of human relationships in all their complexity. Contents: The Survivors -- A Bottle of Tears -- Goodbye, Ady, Goodbye Joe -- The Man with the Impediment -- Peppercorn Rental -- The Trap. Amy Witting (1918 - 2001) was the pen name of an Australian novelist and poet born Joan Austral Fraser. She was widely acknowledged as one of Australia's "finest fiction writers, whose work was full of the atmosphere and color or times past".
