Abstract: "The purpose of this thesis is to portray the lives of different people, at different points in time, but to show that despite the differences amongst the characters, like in life, the lives in the stories intersect somehow. For instance, in one story, a particular character may play only a minor role (or may play no role at all, but is only mentioned as someone from the past); but, in another story, the same character finally has the opportunity to play the protagonist. The reason behind this is to depict a microcosm of reality. In truth, one encounters many people in a single day, but each of these people has his/her own life he leads, in addition to a past already led; and thus, each person has a story to tell. This thesis takes a handful of people, and tells the person's story."--Abstract from author supplied metadata.
