A propulsively well-written trio of novellas linked by a sense of loss and an inquiry into the impossible past." Kate Christensen
In his three novellas, In Short Measures," Strong Conspirators," and Sally Forth," Michael Ruhlman delves deeply into the nuanced complexity of romantic and sexual loveand the inevitable evolution of the heart over the span of years and decades.
Each novella asks questions about the nature of love in terms of loyalty and fidelitywhat are one's obligations toward one's spouse, one's family, and one's heart? In the first novella, In Short Measures," these questions are bound up in a writer's work and a long-ago love. In the second, Strong Conspirators," an unforeseen, cataclysmic event calls for responses from a husband and wife that have never been rehearsed because they have never been required nor even imagined. In Sally Forth," a pair of old friends is forced to explore lost youth and lost love relative to maturity, marriage, and the passage of time.
Profoundly thought-provoking and satisfying, these novellas are beautifully written with plot twists from beginning to end that will captivate the reader.
