Overview

Heather Fowler�s fourth collection of fiction speaks the language of need. Desperate, obsessive, even demented need�both emotional and erotic�is voiced by characters ill or ill-advised.

How we hear our own need and the way it sounds to others proves in these enthralling stories an imperfect but utterly captivating conversation, a destructive yet dynamic discourse between well-being and disease, images and words.
