What People are Saying About This
Gail Wronsky's debut novel The Love-Talkers is an elegant and brilliantly conceived contemporary fable of desire and loss. This breath-taking and visionary tale posits an erotics of the imagination and a politics of self-inscription that are both compelling and heart-breaking. With her poised and luxuriant prose, Wronsky allows us to join her figures in their sensual reckonings of--and their simple recovery of--the ever-rupturing world. Only a poet of Gail Wronsky's powers could make the daily so much the palette of dreams and the realm of myth so clearly the sexual bed of the imagination. The intermingling of worlds, Wronsky suggests, is the generative and procreative power in all of our lives. Take this remarkable book into your own life; you will be dazzled and amazed.
The Love-Talkers is a treat to admirers of lyrical prose and delicate poetry.
Here is a novel that evokes finely crafted characters -- real and mythical --
whose lives intersect against the rich backdrop of Mexico's pre-cortesian and
baroque past, its world of artists and ideologues, its gods and goddesses.
Here is a wonderful read where ertica becomes po tica, where the line between
literature and reality blurs to create an unforgettable world of color and
sensation. In the end, Wronsky leaves her readers wanting more.
