Hide and Seek

Margaret Thompson

Hide and Seek is a collection of short stories that explore the ironies of human existence. Many of the characters are marginalized, living on the edge of things. Some hide essential parts of their natures or their experience, even from themselves; some are looking for explanation and understanding.

Sometimes humorously, sometimes elegantly, but always compassionately, Thompson explores the oddities and complexities of individuals. These stories are written in a way that forces the reader to share the experiences of the characters.
