"What our minds label as "foreign," we tend to regard as exotic, threatening, or irrelevant. Our instinct is to neatly compartmentalize and hold at arm's length that which we have separated from ourselves. But what happens when the division between the foreign and familiar becomes ambiguous? Painful are the times in life when we discover the defection of the familiar to the foreign. A relationship with someone we love, an aspect of our own identity: it is disorienting, jarring, and unnerving when seemingly stable variables are called into question and we come face to face with the suppressed mystery of the human heart and mind. Propelled by urgency, our frenetic modern day lifestyle shies away from such encounters; yet it is this territory of the familiar-turned-foreign that the characters in these stories must learn how to navigate and survive." -- Abstract
