Strange Traffic

(1995)
A collection of stories by

 
 
A Polish maid in Berlin . . . an Irish nanny in New York . . . an American hippie in Tripoli . . . an East German born in Mongolia, bred in Shanghai, with bank accounts in three countries . . . With biting humor, Irene Dische recounts the small tragedies of people condemned by the vagaries of modern existence to a restless mobility. Dische's defectors, tourists, refugees expect freedom and change to lift their spirits, but they stumble under the weight of nostalgia. Dishche's prose is as strangely flavored as the lives she describes.
