Interesting Women

by Andrea Lee

The predominately African/American heroines and their international search for love is the uniting theme of these witty and perceptive stories. The backgrounds, from Italy to Africa to the American South in the sixties, are as vivid as the characters. A real treat for lovers of life and short stories.


Elizabeth seizes the opportunity to contribute, mentioning - she realizes it's a mistake the minute she does - Chaucer. Blank looks from the men, although only Edo, the Count, is truly uneducated. Edo says 'The middle classes always quote when at a loss.'
