The Story

A stylistic fable about love, desire and alienation in a big city, based on the short fiction by Firdaus F. Bilimoria published in Burning Effigy Press (Toronto) anthology – Voices under the Guise of Darkness.

The woman is hurt by her lover’s indifference and confused by his conflicting stories about the other woman whose picture hangs in his bedroom. He lives existentially in his downtown condo, disassociated from the woman he is with and from his own feelings. His thoughts keep returning to Estelle whom he had loved but inexplicably abandoned.
