Love, Pain & the Whole Damn Thing: Four Stories
Love Pain the Whole Damn Thing Four Stories Author:Doris Dorrie, John E. Woods (Translator) Four witty, bitter-sweet stories by talented young German film-writer whose film "Men" reached out beyond its obvious feminist audience to achieve great success in New York and London. Men and films, and the dreams that films embody, form the background to the stories.
I don't often write reviews but this collection is worth the effort. Dorrie gives the reader 4 vignettes from which the reader can try to understand the thin lines between love and obsession, rich and poor, pain and pleasure. Dorrie uses extremes so that we can find our own median. This book is so thought-provoking that I wonder if I'll ever figure it out. I don't think I want to.
