Solitude by Carolyn Kourofsky AND Free Coffee and Donuts by Melinda Gros
Solitude is the story of Edith Bone, a doctor and journalist who is unjustly accused of being a British spy in 1949 Hungary. In solitary confinement for seven years, she must find a way to answer the question how not to despair.
Free Coffee and Donuts follows ChiChi, a homeless gourmand panhandling meals on a subway platform. She runs into a newly employed woman from a shelter, contacts her high school pal’s radio call-in show, then meets a pregnant woman who desperately needs a job. All of these women make a case for the dignity of their lives, and challenge ChiChi to find pride in her own.
