Loss (Psychology) -- Fiction
The stories collected within this thesis are, by and large, tales of loss. To be more specific, the following losses occur: one brother, two lovers, a doting former sister-in-law, one's own health, certain freedoms, (including a room with a view,) life itself (twice,) and innocence, forever gone in an absent-minded moment of brutality.
Chronology is toyed with somewhat, more so towards the beginning of this collection, less so towards the end.
