Lewis Schrager
Category:
Fiction: General/Other
Description:
Intersection of the Gods weaves together tales from across the globe, exploring universal issues that define the human condition: love and hatred; joy and grief; ambition, greed and generosity; spiritualism and rationalism. A desperate American businessman is caught up in the bombing of a Hindu shrine in Bangkok; a young Tunisian woman is spurned by her radicalized lover; a generations-long relationship between an Israeli and a Palestinian family is threatened by the deepening divide between these peoples; an American-trained Malagasy doctor confronts her own fears as she strives to save the life of a young villager stricken with bubonic plague in a remote village in Madagascar; an elderly retiree strives to counter the growing influence of a renowned evangelical minister on the minds of his wife and friends. Intersection of the Gods is the place where people, their beliefs, and the things they value meet and clash in this collection of published and new short fiction.
