Portrait of a Dog as a Young Artist and Other Short Stories

Eugene Mendonsa

As I have lived and worked in many different countries, these short stories reflect the life of a rolling stone. They are fiction, but are drawn from my experiences as an anthropologist who lived in Africa for nine years my forty years in academia my life in the art world my love of animals my political consciousness and people with whom I have come into contact throughout the years. I have listed the thirty-two short stories in no particular order in the table of contents, but then, following this, I have categorized them by subject matter for your convenience, should you wish to, for instance, read a funny story or one about animals, etc. Some of these stories are humorous, others are sad. Some are angry and some are light-hearted. Thats the nature of life, isnt it I hope you enjoy them.
