Title: Barely Audible and Other Stories
Author: Walker, Jennifer Elizabeth

Abstract: This collection of short stories explores the psychology of a range of characters: a disappointed aging music teacher (as found in "Carol"), a group of self-help mavens ("Escape from Elba"), an ambitious young professional ("Politics"), a disgruntled housewife ("Nudge"), and an overly-social butterfly ("Barely Audible"). The different stories look into the implications of denial and perseverance, as each of these characters struggle with their self-delusions to find the truth, or to keep hiding from it.
