Body of Work: and other stories

Body of Work: and other stories

by Andrei Guruianu




Throughout thirteen stories, Body of Work chronicles the physical and emotional toll of characters consumed by the all-too-human need for a connection. Their world is achingly common - beauty and regret, obsession and self-doubt, the seductive charm of loneliness. Often fragmented, whimsical, always on the verge of melancholy, the collection is a sepia-toned portrait of nostalgia - each story like an artifact of our impermanence, an embrace of all that we have lost, of all that we might lose and love again someday.
