Aripan and Other Stories

Stephen Alter (Author)
Synopsis Interwoven through the themes of love and loss, these stories heighten a sense of nostalgia for the past, for home, for people and places never seen again. They tell of characters struggling to find their roots in a world that offers no more than the next destination. Of loves that remain secret, that fail. Of desires that linger unfulfilled. These are contemporary stories, dealing with an age where the personal and the political have never been closer, where urban relationships are reinvented, where family bonds become more vital even in their diminishing importance. They are also funny stories, of friendships and the quirks of love, even a dismembered ghost and the power of small-town gossip. With delicate strokes and the intricate interweaving of an aripan they paint a picture of a world that will delight you and move you.
