Differing perceptions of criminal behavior : sexual assault versus violent non-sexual crimes

Jamee Lee Gresley


Modern love and other stories is a collection of short stories that oscillates between a central protagonist and his surrounding online world. This project presents and analyzes the challenges of finding a place in today's society. With fiction as the tool, the short stories reveal truths about human nature, growing up, parental relationships and attempts to discover happiness. The focus is less on plot and more on the illumination and examination of structures of feeling within ordinary people. Characters bleed from one story to the next, ideas remain afloat, and the reader finds meaning in the sum of the collection's parts.
