Tales From The Pacific Rim
The Man Who Wanted to Buy a Wife and Other Stories
You have read and surely enjoyed books by Harold Stephens, and now Wolfenden Publishing is proud to announce the publication of another book by Stephens–TALES FROM THE PACIFIC RIM.
Although this collection of short stories is fiction, Stephens felt he could better tell the truth in fiction about the social habits and traditions of the people of the Pacific Rim, from Tahiti across the vast Pacific to Southeast Asia. What happens when a man wants to buy an Asian wife or when an American woman wants to impose her ideas of liberation on an Asian woman? Educate an Asian servant girl and what are the results? What are the consequences when a top gun fighter pilot changes his mind about the war in Vietnam? Can a school teacher impose foreign concepts on kids of a different faith, and can a beachcomber find true love in Tahiti?
The answers to these questions and others can be found in this compelling book of short stories by an author who has lived most of his adult life in Asia and the Pacific.
