Publisher's Summary

Life has the capacity of great moments and attainment, of lives well lived, fulfilling for ourselves and for those we touch.

But for others life is arduous. There is no spark to ignite the curiosity, to explore and achieve a stability and a growth to their lives. Indeed their lives, in their own eyes, become almost meaningless, their sense of themselves subsumed under a myriad of problems, whether real or imagined. Seismic events in a life might crush them; the loss of a loved one for instance. Coping is difficult, support hard to find and isolation abounds. We never really know the reason or motivation but sometimes one final dreadful way out is the solution.

In this volume our authors, including Amy Levy, Willa Cather, Honore de Balzac, O. Henry, Franz Kafka and a wealth of others, explore stories that help us to understand and recognise a tragic circumstance.
