Abstract: The characters who inhabit Bookeater and Other Love Stories have little in common with each other. Their stories are not interconnected. However, they do share an almost overwhelming desire to connect, to unite with someone--or something--in order to stave off loneliness. These stories explore the ways in which desire inevitably inspires selfish and destructive behavior. These characters are willing to lie, cheat, steal, and (almost) kill in their desperate attempts to win and keep the people--and objects--they love."--Abstract from author supplied metadata.
