Short Stories About Us
By Carine Fabius
(Author, Blogger, and Co-Founder/Owner of Earth Henna)
Dynamic, thought-provoking fiction that covers the
business of living and loving in the 21st century!
In Short Stories About Us, the lens is turned on communication, identity, infidelity, technology, rape, racism, love, desire, sex, regret, and more in this stimulating mix of insightful tales, as lived by a multicultural cast of American and sometimes unexpected characters. A unique bonus section titled “TalkFest” offers the author’s lively, sometimes hilarious views on the issues raised in the stories. These are presented as short essays meant to spur further reflection on the stories, and as a jumping-off point for online discussion between readers and the author
On this page you can purchase and download individual stories from the collection in PDF format—readable on computer or tablet. Each tale from the book includes its corresponding TalkFest essay.

“Carine Fabius writes about relationships in a timely, trenchant and poignant manner. Her metaphorical stories about the sun and the moon, a violin and a saxophone, and a tomato and a carrot made me think about the characters from my show and how real they felt to people.
It is a beautiful thing!”
