An exquisitely written novel about the delicate balance between loss and desire, abandonment and renewal, and the fragility of relationships.
From Publishers Weekly
Frucht ( Snap ; Iowa Short Fiction Award-winner Fruit of the Month ) creates a gently erotic view of the human and natural worlds in this elegant, surreal second novel. Frucht is by turns playful and pensive, fanciful and realistic.
