Seven Days by Various

In today's world we want everything in a quick and compact form, and today's reader is no different. Seven Days consists of easily accessible yet powerful snapshots of life from seven very different angles. Seven intriguing authors each delve into the consciousness of a character depicted on a single day. Named after the day described, each story offers an insight from an individual cultural perspective and together they weave a powerful and gritty portrait of human experience. A unique cross between the novel and the short story, this collection is designed for the busy modern-day reader and is an illustration of the unexpected wealth that the repackaged short story can offer.
