-- A mother teaches her son how to kiss. A father and his grown daughter share secrets while sharing their bodies. A woman finds she cannot experience her lover's touch without succumbing to intensely erotic recollections of a past lover. Webs of memory, oblique emotion and immediate sensation -- spun in prose that is spare, fevered, oblique and beautiful -- Nightwork's tales tease out the sexual and the violent imbedded in the mundane.
-- Christine Schutt lives and works in New York City. This is her first book.
-- First published by Knopf ('96).
