Are you so ugly youíve been exiled?
Does your sweetheart swear like a trooper and yodel like an angel?
Do women moon you in scorn?
Has your girlfriend grown opposable toes?
Are you being pursued by someone whose freckles burn?
In this richly varied collection of 31 stories, each one dedicated to a particular part of the physique, Body Parts: The Anatomy Of Love explores the common themes experienced by all of us at some point during the mating game, whether it occurs at the point of initial, exhilarating attraction and its lavish promise of hope; during the course of an habitual lifetime of snidy remarks; or at some unenviable, fumbling circumstance in between.
Desire, jealousy, belonging, need, tenderness - all emotions have their place. From head to toe via freckles and fingers, by the end of this painfully funny, at times disturbing and never predictable journey, the agony and enchantment of love in all itís guises has been expertly dissected.
