Peggy Hinaekian Releases a Collection of Short Stories

Guildmember Peggy Hinaekian released her third book, Of Humans and Animals, a Collection of Short Stories and Essays. This follows her memoir, The Girl from Cairo, and her erotica novel, Of Julia and Men.

Her observations on human behavior are spot on, as she travels the inner thought worlds of a fascinating combination of men, women, and even animals. Bravo to Peggy for illuminating the human psyche from a spectrum of viewpoints from Old World European to modernistic-and a variety of ages. A wonderful tapestry of tales from the heart and soul.
