After the Hunger
The central figure in many of these stories is the psychically wounded World War II veteran who is absent. Here the definition of the family is changed, and its re-imagining remains problematic. Challenges are posed to characters' ideas about selfhood and their role as daughters, mothers, sisters, friends, wives and lovers. A major theme of the collection is the search for place--within the family, and within the larger context of the post-war, post-modern world. The search for place often involves a search for faith as well.
