They tell about love and hate, the persecution of children, the joys and clumsiness growing up, memory, bereavement, and the triumphs and sorrows of old age.

There is plenty of irony and humour in the telling, but also moments of real tragedy where, in a few words, the enormity of the situation is given life and, we are told to pursue life despite its sting.
