An Unrehearsed Desire

(2008)
A collection of stories by

 
 
The fifteen stories in this dazzling collection range from the story of a heart-broken father coming to terms with the drug-overdose death of his son, a young girl outsmarting a pedophile during what she calls, "the summer of naked men," and a brilliant but socially awkward woman who deals with betrayal by taking on the persona of a bear.
Weaving these stories together is the notion that what one wants and what one needs are not always the same things. In "It Could Be Serious," a child must choose between the safety of her mother's controlling over-indulgence and the wider, more dangerous world. In "Snow Like Silence," a woman who professes a craving for solitude finds herself more isolated than she ever imagined by a freak ice-storm, and in "Nice Guy," a man who thinks who knows everything he needs to about love is taught a lesson by a damaged girl from his childhood.
This collection continues the acclaimed author's exploration into her characters' psychological landscapes and ensures her reputation as a writer of razor-sharp intellect and deep compassion.
