Six elegantly connected stories explore, through first-person narratives, the conflicts and commonalities of love, faith, and sex. A minor character in the first story becomes the narrator in the second, and so on, with each story building on its predecessor, until they come full circle.
INTENSE IN SUBJECT yet restrained in tone, these stories are about longings--often held for years--and the ways in which sex and religion can become parallel forms of dedication and comfort.
