Samenvatting

Harry and The Anderdonk: Harry, a real estate agent, approaches the home of his childhood. The bank has foreclosed the property, the people had supposedly fled and Harry got the listing. He now stands outside recalling his childhood fears of the dark and musty smelling basement. There is no sense, he decides, to go there.Shrugging off his feelings he enters the house, making a point of staying clear of the basement. He completes all of the information he needs, and prepares to leave, without descending the rickety steps to the dreaded underground. I’ll just note it as unfinished. It probably hasn’t changed in all these years. So, why bother. Nonsense, he thinks, you’re an adult. Behave as an adult. Still, Somewhere in the back of his mind he can hear his mother shouting at him “Harry, you have been a very bad boy. Wait until your father gets home.” Pushing his fears aside, he takes a deep breath he opens the basement door and descends the old wooden steps into the unknown.On a different note “Boots” introduces us to an elderly woman, Felicity Harper, living in an assisted living apartment complex. She has just fulfilled a life long desire of owning a pair of designer boots.Living in a foreign land can be fulfilling, but also trying. Language differences often result in strange interpretations. “The Art of Communication” takes us on a short journey by bus, through Tel Aviv from the Central Bus Terminal and thence to Wolfson Hospital for medical care. He is suffering from severe back pain, a result of Scoliosis. It is vital that he does not miss his appointment. On his journey he meets a “Bubby” and a receptionist at the hospital who only speaks Russian. Delay after delay only increases his discomfort.“The Crooked man” introduces us to Wilson, a commodities trader, and Charles, a pharmacist. From opposite ends of the economic spectrum their friendship towards one another grows. At one point, however, the friendship is tested by the occurrence of a singular event. The resolution requires utmost understanding. This is a tale of adversity and a severe test of their relationship.
