Doctor of Philosophy (PhD)
The stories in this collection present female protagonists who struggle to find a voice with which to describe their everyday lives. These eleven short fictions chronicle the lives of women as they seek their identities and assert their individualities while maintaining a sense of self. The stories "Blue Tea," "Bliss," "Time," "Like Other People," "Angels and Prophets," and "Remember Lucille" are thematically linked by place.
