What Can You Do

Novelist and short story writer Cynthia Flood's What Can You Do is a collection of sharp short stories that examine the human condition.

Cynthia Flood

In these twelve stories that unfold over a few hours or a weekend or five decades, adults deceive themselves about their motives — greed, desire for control, jealousy, fear, ambition.

With unflinching realism reminiscent of William Trevor, Cynthia Flood exposes the failings of the human heart and, with a marvellous unsentimental brutality, leaves many a character unredeemed. (From Biblioasis)
