Until that night when I saw Patrick with James on the street, in central London, I thought we would spend our lives by each otherís sides. That was the night when Patrick was supposed to be abroad, with his work. I didnít know anything about James on that night but since then I developed an interest in James and his life. No, not an obsession, just an interest. So now I often imagined that James and I were friends and that, forgetting about the barrier created by his and Patrickís affair, we could go for a drink every now and then.
13 Pathways Home is M M Skutetzkiís literary debut.
This is a collection of thirteen short stories about instincts and emotions written from thirteen different perspectives. Each story presents characters in everyday situations, often traumatic, such as betrayal, divorce, depression or terminal illness. These short stories address the reactions to those situations which are simply a reflection of human nature, and they talk of our endless quest to better understand who we really are.
Written in a personal manner, the volume is a deeply sensual and intellectual book. M M Skutetzki creates a vivid, sometimes provocative picture, a collection of images, which allows readers to sink into the world of the book but also into the world of their own emotions.
