The Art of Absence (Paperback)Joy Passanante (author)
- We can order this
The stories in The Art of Absence explore the complex relationships between lovers, between family members, between friends. What Passanante shows again and again is how the ties that bind can be our comfort, and our despair. Though the overt subject of most of these stories is passion that transgresses the boundaries of marriage and of other familial and professional codes, what the characters act out in surprising, creative, and sometimes terrifying ways are the hopes and unforeseen consequences of the post-war suburban dream of the perfect place, the home that will satisfy every need and settle all questions.
