Collection of short stories for youth / adults
Imagine sitting in a bus where everyone has a story to tell!
In these nine short stories from contemporary daily life, the author lets people tell their story. With this, he allows the reader to glimpse the silhouettes behind the people. Their stories intertwine to reveal the ways in which we all affect each other.
In this collection we meet the teenager, who always feels his parents´ eagle-eyes on him; the woman in the red mac on her way to work in the linen store with a sore wrist; the man with the moustache, who no longer wants to hide who he is; the young brunette struggling to find her footing between expectations and demands; the dark-eyed young man with the impression that the grey-eyes of the man next to him are ominous; the old man, who faithfully visits his wife at the nursing home, and the young mother struggling to balance work and family life.
