This Is Now

Author:

Ciara Geraghty

Synopsis:

Martha wants a drink. There are six reasons why she shouldn't have one; she wrote them down over a year ago. Two of the reasons are the same. A name. Of someone she didn't think she'd ever see again... Roman, a fourteen-year-old Polish immigrant, is on the run. He understands now what it means to be caught between a rock and a hard place... Tobias, old and alone, lies in a hospital bed in Dublin where the memories of Dresden are insistent visitors... And for Cillian, a police detective, the past is like a current, pulling him back, reminding him of all he's lost. Each is running from the moments that brought them to a place where the past cannot be undone and the future cannot be known - a place called now.

The Yellow Wall-Paper

Author:

Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Synopsis:

'The Yellow Wall-Paper' is Gilman's pioneering Gothic masterpiece, telling the story of a woman's descent into madness. Confined to a room, with only the intricate wallpaper for stimulation, the narrator slowly loses her grip on reality. She becomes increasingly suspicious of the people who care for her, convinced they are conspiring against her. As she becomes increasingly transfixed by the sprawling pattern on her walls, her horrifying fantasy becomes disturbingly real. Also contained in this collection are eighteen other stories, which exhibit Gilman's imaginative treatment of women removed from their traditional roles.
