“Delusion and Dreams” contains twelve stories, some of which are linked. The story which gives its’ name to the title of this collection is in four parts, and tells us of the lives of several people who knew each other twenty years previously. At that time, they were in school and then college, but their paths in life had diverged once they stepped into the world of work. The stories are interesting and surprising, looking at life from several different viewpoints, as their paths crossed again, twenty years on.
I also enjoyed the two stories called “Friends and Neighbours”. Both had sinister twists that I had not expected! The other tales in this collection contained humour, tragedy and so much more. There was also a treat of five bonus, previously published stories, which contained all the hallmarks of Maria Savva’s writing - humour, insight and a twist at the end.
If you are a fan of short stories, or if you have never tried them, I would recommend this book to you. The author writes so well, with true insight into human nature. I am sure this collection will entertain, make you think and find you searching out more of this author’s work.
Although short stories, they are connected within the dreams and delusions of the human condition and cleverly spaced out so that some characters are pushed further - I really liked that idea.
Not wanting to give spoilers, I will say that this collection is well-written and definitely hones in on the everyday emotions that fill our days, as well as delving deeper, highlighting that we're not always sure what is reality.
My top three favorites: Happy New Year, Getting Away With It & Merry Go Round.
