At the heart of each short story in this intriguing collection is a parable, a universal truth or lesson that strikes a chord in all of us. The stories concern very human psychological situations: the vagaries of love, the pitfalls of envy, the sacrifices of ambition or, in the award-winning story ‘The Legacy’, how ridiculing another person may come back to you. Most stories here are fiction, but others — as with the timeless wisdom of parables — sail very close to home.
