Description

This masterfully crafted story collection by the author of the internationally best-selling novel Mister Sandman is a haunting audiobook that is certain to both disturb and entertain. With a particular focus on obsession and the abnormal, We So Seldom Look on Love explores life at its quirky extremes, pushing past limits of convention into lives that are fantastic and heartbreakingly real. Whether writing about the dilemma of a two-headed man who attempts to expunge his own pain, the shock of a woman who discovers she has married a transsexual, the erotic delusions of a woman who repeatedly exposes her body to an unknown voyeur, or the bizarre predilections of a female necrophile (a story made into the acclaimed motion picture Kissed), Gowdy convinces us with incisive detail, only to disarm us with black humor.
