The Crying Heart Tattoo

(1982)
A novel by

 
 
First published in 1982, this is the outrageous, romantic, and irresistible story of two people, Sonny and Felicity, who begin a relationship when he is 14 and she is 34, and continue it through four marriages and many misadventures until her death at age 70. Interwoven with their sexy, honest, and riveting tale is a strangely parallel story that she tells him about a prehistoric outcast who meets up with her former tribe only to confuse and frighten them, meanwhile falling in love with a young boy. Alternately heartbreaking, bawdy, and blissful, The Crying Heart Tattoo recalls the absurdities of life while rallying us to the cause of true love. This sparkling, unerringly original novel now appears in trade paperback for the first time.
