A collection of stories by

 
 
Discerning readers and reviewers greeted the publication of The Word "Desire" as a cause for celebration. Now in paperback, an ever wider audience can discover why Rikki Ducornet has been called "linguistically explosive . . . one of the most interesting American writers around" (The Nation).Amazon.comIn the short stories of Rikki Ducornet, desire takes on many forms: an ivory chessboard, the Stations of the Cross, a fleeting glance at an unknown woman. And it happens in many different times and places, from turn-of-the-century Mexico to 1930s upstate New York. The 12 stories collected in The Word "Desire" examine the many aspects of passion: betrayed love, cowardly love, transcendent love--they're all here in Ducornet's erotic universe, described in rich, lyrical prose.
