FRESH AND HUNGRY is a collection of eight short stories about young women who must reconcile their divided cultural identities and the dynamics of their relationships with men, standards towards infidelity, sexuality, domestic abuse, intellectual and professional ambitions. The collection describes the evolution of feminine identity in the lives of eight women from the ages of fifteen to thirty, showing the circle of experience that forms a woman's sense of self and the way she perceives the world around her. The stories are linked by one year that each character spent living in the same boarding house in Paris. While living abroad, the protagonists experience their own lives with the sensibilities of a tourist, hungry for adventure and transformation without the constraints of home.
