About this product
- DescriptionA collection of short stories that explores the arduousness of people's lives and covers such diverse subjects as human solidarity, generational change, single parenthood, domestic violence, the tragic complexity of revolution, police brutality, artistic hubris, and the limitations of rationalism.
- Author BiographyAllan Cameron was born in 1952 and grew up in Nigeria and Bangladesh. He has written two novels, The Golden Menagerie (Luath Press, 2004), partly based on Apuleius' The Golden Ass but also a polemic against it, and The Berlusconi Bonus, a political satire principally directed at Western consumerism, the policies of Bush and Blair, and Fukuyama's now disowned victory song of American capitalism. His non-fiction work, In Praise of the Garrulous, is an examination of the essentiality of language to human nature. The first of two collection of short stories, Can the Gods Cry?, was published in 2011, and this volume is its companion. He does not speak the truth to power, as power never listens or only listens to other power, but he does continue to write the truth about power, as he sees it, and to demonstrate his admiration for the powerless and their prodigious resilience.
