31.10.99"Donald's Affair" Paolo de Paola Donald is blocked. In the solitude of his apartment, his Muse whispers words in his ear in vain: his novel has stagnated for two years. Then he meets a woman, seated alone at a café terrasse. She is beautiful, speaks a foreign language, and seems to have stepped straight out of his dreams. Could she help him finish his novel? And if so, how is he going to explain that to his Muse? Stephanie Campion, Sally Ann Cojean, Eduardo Cué, Georgia SmithPublished in French as "Donald sa Muse" by the Canadian publisher Editions du Marais
17.10.99"The Vase"Georgia Smith Bridget and Donald are divorcing with such sensible good humor that even they have trouble believing it - until, while sorting out their possessions, they find an antique vase that each of them would very much like to keep. Polite disagreement hardens quickly into a brittle impasse -- all in front of their teenage daughter, Caitlin. At this delicate moment, Bridget's brother Steve arrives with his lover Nathan, to take Caitlin away for the summer. As relations between Bridget and Donald move inexorably toward a violent rupture, the gay couple is obliged to become the family's base of stability and good sense. Eric Connor,
