Marshall Cavendish Classics: Saving the Rainforest and Other Stories
“I believe in the sanctity of the ordinariness of everyday life: beyond its charmed boundaries lies confusion.” So speaks the voice of conservatism and conformity. But shouldn’t one fly, push oneself to the limit and beyond, break all rules? With humour and intelligence, the stories in Saving the Rainforest explore the tensions that can arise when the desire for personal fulfilment clashes with society’s norms.
