We all have crisis points in our lives --- moments of time where we
are never the same, where a simple word from a friend or an enemy
can stay with us forever, where a whispered admission of guilt or a
secret made public can alter the course of a relationship
indefinitely. Olaf Olafsson's book of short stories catches 12 of
these relationships right at their own individual points of crisis.
Men and women alike will be carried along by these tales, as the
universality of human nature takes the place of rigid stereotypes
or gender-based points of view.
