Overview

From acclaimed author Alan Cheuse -- National Public Radio's longtime "Voice of Books" -- comes a trio of provocative novellas. In the title piece, "Paradise, or, Eat Your Face," we meet travel writer Susan Wheelis and follow her exotic journey to Bali, and into her own frustrated soul. “Care" centers on Rafe Santera, a recent stroke victim who was once a vibrant, intellectual romantic. Attended by one of his many female admirers, we find ourselves in the midst of an unusual and politically incorrect love story. Cheuse takes us into Santera's erotic past, set against the daily struggles of a harrowing decline. The third novella, "When The Stars Threw Down Their Spears and Watered Heaven with Their Tears," follows author Paul Brunce as he grapples with art, life, and family. Publisher's Weekly has praised Cheuse's "impressive command of many voices" and, in this collection, he is once again in top form and in possession of a powerful range of literary gifts.
