Delphine

Bruce Douglas Reeves

Because of her dark-haired beauty, Delphine Roberts became a reluctant success, first as a model, then as an actress. Her work with a great French director brought her international movie stardom. A film with a famous Italian director gave her a daughter. However, none of this satisfied her. Searching for something else in her life, she and her little girl explored the world together, traveling from London to Vietnam, from Paris to Istanbul, and beyond. Fascinated by the Middle East, she explored and lived in many parts of that ancient world, including Palestine. Deeply affected when she sees the massive wall severing Palestinian lands from Israeli territory, Delphine is determined to learn the facts and see first-hand the hardships faced by ordinary Palestinian citizens. Eventually, she raises the money to produce and star in a movie about the Palestinian territories. Although working conditions are brutal, she is determined to finish the movie, even if it's the last she ever makes.

BRUCE DOUGLAS REEVES has published three novels—The Night Action, Man on Fire, and Street Smarts--and his short fiction has appeared in dozens of magazines and literary journals. He lives with his wife, Sherrill, in Berkeley, California.
