The Locked Door and Other Stories

Usually delivers within 2 weeks.


The Locked Door and Other Stories collects Rosario de Guzman-Lingat's short stories chosen for the various ways they explore the female experience in all its complexity. They feature women as protagonists who, despite life's numerous blows, refuse to give in, as they strive mightily to make sense of their lives fraught with difficulties. There are no happy endings in Lingat's fiction. There is only a steadfast, clear-eyed view of what it means to live in an unjust system where women find themselves victims. The "locked door" is symptomatic of the almost impenetrable barrier that women must force open to gain their freedom.
