Celia Davis, an American-born English teacher in the Loire valley of France, is intrigued by one of her students, a mysterious foreigner named Mehdi. He and his sister Zahra are the children of a Muslim father, killed in the Iraqi bombing of Tehran, and a Jewish mother nicknamed « Ester, » in reference to the Biblical Esther, the Jewish wife of a Persian king.
How do humans live with repression and the fear of difference ? Is there room for tolerance and compassion ? This saga is a tale for our times, finding mythical depth in the Biblical story of Queen Esther.
Louise Thunin brings together, in this collection, fifteen of her short stories, a number of which were prize-winners and have appeared in various literary reviews. The stories are peopled with characters of varying cultural backgrounds, including Iran, Bosnia, Russia, France, England, America.. A common thread runs through all : meeting « the Other », with the challenges and gifts he or she represents, while remaining always a variation on the theme of who we are.
