This collection of short stories features stories from Sylvia Schlettwein and Isabella Morris. Each one of the short stories in this collection deals with an aspect of cruelty inflicted by Bullies, Beasts and Beauties on someone undeserving. The stories cover a range of topics and characters from all walks of life: from a bed-ridden cheating lover at the mercy of his betrayed wife; to a domestic worker trying to improve her lot in life, only to be thwarted by a jealous sister; to a man on the border, trying to make up for mistakes in his past but placing his fate in the hands of an inept mother, and many more. Surreal, futuristic, vampiric, historic and at other times grittily rooted in southern African reality: this striking collection of short stories will leave an indelible mark. These stories are a rich read, full of drama, malice and pathos. Each story is self-contained and perfect to be read as a single vignette.
