Biting the Moon

(2015)
A Novella by

 
 
It's been years since the woman in "Biting the Moon" has seen her former lover, Felix, a famous, Oscar-winning composer. But upon hearing the news of his sudden death, she mourns his loss by revisiting moments of their former life. Jumping in time from the pair's first encounter at an artists' colony to their rendezvous in cities across the US, the path the narrator takes toward acceptance is much like the jazz the couple loved so much: winding, unexpected, and beautiful.
