Description - Ladies of the Night by Althea Prince
'Ladies of the Night' is set in Toronto and Antigua. With womens loves and lives as their focus, the stories contain dramatic twists and turns: some humorous, others shocking and disturbing, all leaving a haunting melody behind. The Toronto stories capture the issues women face as they walk the ground of intimate and family relationships in that city. The Antiguan setting of some of the stories are reflective of Princes insight into relationships, captured in her novel and essays. The characters reveal their different ways of managing a range of struggle, pain, rage, love, and pure, unadulterated joy. The humour of some stories complement the plaintive sadness and emotionality of the strings some other stories pluck.
