Chism Talbert had loved her first, and best -- but he had broken her heart. He was the caretaker's handsome son.
She was Minta Westerly, the privileged girl who'd surrendered to him one starry summer night -- then been abandoned when he abruptly left town. Now she was back in the big house where she'd spent family vacations -- and suddenly, impossibly, Chism walked through the door, pinning her with mesmerizing eyes that burned with fury and desire. Both were haunted by the dreams they'd woven together, the promises they'd whispered under a willow tree -- and both were devastated by a misunderstanding that still felt like a betrayal. But the years apart and the pain they had denied only fed the fires of passion that sizzled within. Minta longed to taste the magic of Chism's lips once more, even if he insisted that time had made them strangers. Could she make him see she belonged in his world, and that he would have a home in her heart forever?
This work by Diane Williams delves into the strange relationships of men and women. From marital betrayal to spousal abuse and unrelenting desire, Williams illuminates the lives of her characters in prose as sparse and stark as it is beautiful. These stories are as short as prose poems and as complex as novels. In them, meanings remain ambiguous and consequences seem uncertain. In the novella “On Sexual Strength” she describes the intense and sometimes strange relationship between two neighboring couples and the rage that comes with adultery, and a narrator whose social inadequacies and lack of inhibitions lead to destruction. The world Williams creates is a sensual place where quiet epiphanies—such as the one that occurs after an extramarital affair— are also possible: “It was like My Trying to Have a Tender-Hearted nature.
This is how love can be featured.” Such flashes of insight and emotion glue together the fragments of life Williams lays before the reader, and the reader rejoices at the revelations.

Open Samuel Zamarripa's debut novel, The Spectacle of Let - the Oliet and Obit, and embark on a literary journey through the imaginative work of his protagonist, Otto Crist�bal Almeida, and his mysterious manuscript, The Voice of the Looking Mountains, a book within a book. Almeida has a fantastic story to tell about Creation and the first spoken word of God. It is a tale spun from the bound stories of his numinous paramour, Niva Miramontes, who speaks with uncommon conviction. "In the beginning," she insists, "God said 'Let, ' and the rest is just a spectacle." From a mysterious monastery in Veracruz, Mexico, to an overnight cruise on the majestic Hudson River, Miramontes reveals her heavenly gift of parable. Weaving together the generational saga of the Portuondo family-their salacious past and their journey to redemption-Niva's tales captivate Otto. Overwhelmed by Niva's spellbinding words, Otto falls into the clutches of an Oliet-a dream's dream, a place where fiction invades life, yielding truth of a different kind. His book languishes and finally lands on the desk of his brooding editor, L. Rand Bonarias, who plunges into the unfinished manuscript and discovers that while Otto's love story may be a literary gimmick, his unbelievable account of the story of Creation and Niva Miramontes is more than artful prose. A gospel of fantastic spirituality and abiding love, The Spectacle of Let - the Oliet and Obit, reimagines the marvel of Creation and the unbound possibilities of a single word.
