Two collections of short slice-of-life stories about the lives of women. Both are very realistic and low-key. The stories in All My Darling Daughters are interconnected, and deal mainly with love and marraige, whereas Monokuro Kinderbook's are all stand-alone and cover a wide variety of topics.
Monokuro Kinderbook and The Yellow Book are two series of vignettes that glimpse into the ordinary abnormal day of the average woman. All sorts of topics are explored, from falling in love with characters from classical French literature to buying skimpy underwear because of a something a fortune-teller said. All sorts of women are focused on- highschoolers, the elderly, and everyone in-between. Both are extremely understated, and most stories lack a finite beginning or end.
