Light: Selected Stories by Joy T. Dayrit
A posthumous collection of 24 short stories by Joy T. Dayrit (1944 - 2011), this volume "mines the realist and fabulist modes through vivid and painterly language and sharply drawn characterizations. The woman in the flux of forming her self - or her many selves - lies at the heart of many of the stories. Hemmed in by patriarchy, shaped by her society, she nevertheless tries to break free. These are journeys well worth the reader's precious hours."
