Loverless Love


by Christopher Guerin

In seventeen absorbing stories, Christopher Guerin explores American sexual mores over the past 50 years. The title novella is a vivid character study of a woman who sleeps next to but not with men. Satire, sex and sexual fantasy, and ironies abound—from campus genius to high mountain meadows, from sexy performance art to the dangerous sexuality of an ultra-intense workplace. Sexual revenge balances the heartbreak of romantic sacrifice. Succubi invade male dormitories, and a young man’s sexual initiation comes at the expense of a Vietnam soldier’s trust. At times erotic, more often simply frank, Loverless Love displays the variety of our obsessions with sex and love, written with subtlety, humor, and grace in language.
