A Normal Life and Other Stories



Author: Reine Arcache Melvin

The subject of her stories is desire--for a lover, for a homeland, for the possibility of a simple life. Many of these tales take place in the Philippines during the time of coups d'tat and revolution, but the men and women of A Normal Life are caught in their own private dramas: the end of a marriage, the beginning of a love affair, the ambiguities of motherhood, the thrall of eroticism.
