As I have lived and worked in many different countries, these short stories reflect the life of a rolling stone. They are fiction, but are drawn from my experiences as an anthropologist who lived in Africa for nine years; my forty years in academia; my life in the art world; my love of animals; my political consciousness and people with whom I have come into contact throughout the years. I have listed the thirty-two short stories in no particular order in the table of contents, but then, following this, I have categorized them by subject matter for your convenience, should you wish to, for instance, read a funny story or one about animals, etc. Some of these stories are humorous, others are sad. Some are angry and some are light-hearted. That's the nature of life, isn't it? I hope you enjoy them.
