    'Rosanne Dingli's stories deal with art, music, and literature, and are intensely concerned with location and atmosphere. They combine diverse meanings of intimacy experienced by a fascinating assortment of characters, at different times, in different places.

    Uneasy familiarity between friends thrown together by a difficult love for one woman, or the bond of siblings, are forms of intimacy that can border on contempt. Artists, musicians and writers can have such similar intense feelings ... or such diverse emotions, about similar situations. Lovers' tenderness can endure because of deep understanding. Betrayal, confusion and joy live side-by-side with disappointment, bewilderment and elation, and always, there is that sense of involvement, of relationship.

    This is an excursion into how close, or how distant, two individuals can feel. Enjoy this special bijou collection of fifteen previously published and awarded stories' (publisher blurb).
