Abstract

The Talent Show, A Collection of Short Stories is a multi-themed project that explores the everyday lives of everyday people. Hope, fear, and love are just a few of the themes that permeate throughout these tales. This collection is quite personal; deriving from actual events that have occurred over the past several decades, and are unified by an underlying theme of loss. Each story plays with language, and uses open dialogues to convey messages. The narratives engage readers with snippets of life that evoke emotion, while leaving its readers with thought-provoking images.
