Synopsis

What gives meaning to life? What do the rich owe the poor? How can we disagree without being disagreeable? Who deserves forgiveness? Is it ever OK to compromise our values? Which is more important—justice or mercy? Does the end ever justify the means? How can we move beyond racial stereotypes? Whose life is worth living and who gets to decide that? What would you sacrifice to save the earth? These are some of the questions posed by this collection, whose characters—parents and children, friends and lovers, colleagues and classmates, constant comrades and scary strangers—grapple with injustice, love, political passion, fear of dying and the curse of conscience.
