Days Like Today

by Rachel Ingalls

A collection of long, short stories that are rather grim but fascinating. Many elements of Greek tragedy make them quite challenging to read too. The last story 'No Love Lost' is a tour de force about the desperation of life and survival in war-torn Eastern European which, thank heaven, ended with a hint of optimism.

The young were natural betrayers, of course -particularly young men: that was a fact of life. They were always moving forward too fast to keep up with old ties. They had to find their place in the world and not simply copy the ways of older generations. You made them the inheritors of your future self and then they threw it away.
