Abstract/Description:
Please, Not at the Dinner Table is a series of eleven short stories that treat embarrassing or taboo subjects in an analytical manner that is often light-hearted and humorous. The stories, though fictional, are written in a realist style, and are set in contemporary times. As a whole, the stories deal directly and graphically with certain realities oflife that are often shied away from in literature. In dealing with these intimate, embarrassing, or unfortunate necessities of the human animal, the characters often are forced to reveal their true natures, if only to the reader. Though parts of this collection are graphic, outright vulgarity is most often restricted to the voice of a character or narrator.
