An Unrehearsed Desire

An Unrehearsed Desire

by Lauren B. Davis (Author)

The fourteen stories in this dazzling collection continue acclaimed author Lauren B. Davis' exploration into her characters' psychological landscapes, and ensure her reputation as a writer of razor-sharp intellect and deep compassion. Weaving these stories together is the notion that what one wants and what one needs is not always the same thing: a tale of a heart-broken father coming to terms with the drug-overdose death of his son; a child who must choose between the safety of her mother's controlling over-indulgence and the wider, more dangerous world; a young girl outsmarting a pedophile during what she calls "the summer of naked men;" to a brilliant but socially awkward woman who deals with betrayal by taking on the persona of a bear... Davis hits the nail on the head each and every time.
