He is standing in front of the window, in the rain. Behind the curtains he sees two shadows embracing. He should have known better! A woman like her! He dials her number. When she says her name, he hangs up. He waits and calls again. Her voice sounds frightened: "Who's there?" He says nothing. The third time he calls, an angry male voice answers the phone, threatening. Then he sees them back in the room, hovering uncertainly. Not bad for the beginning...
A collection of stories by ten writers, covering a wide spectrum of possible causes and symptoms of jealousy – unfulfilled longing, passionate desire, suspected betrayal, fear of losing and rage at having been abandoned. They describe, grippingly and without taboos, a condition that nobody likes to experience and to which no one is immune.
After the successful collection of jealousy stories by young female writers, now a volume of stories, published here for the first time, by renowned male writers.
