Body Language

From the high plains of Colorado to a bar in East Liberty, PA, spiritual sojourners try to ignore their fears and find consolation in human touch.

John tries to be a faithful husband, but he can’t say no when the love of his life invites him on a fishing trip. Called upon to resolve the mystery of her brother’s death, uptight Sunny lands on a nude beach, talking to the men who knew him best. Deep underground in a Spanish cave, a spelunker discovers that the miraculous and tragic can coexist.

Body Language is a poignant collection of classic short stories featuring women and men, young and old, each striving to live up to the best versions of themselves. If you like vibrant portrayals of lives at the crossroads and elegantly-crafted prose, then get your sneak preview now.

A sister’s love. A debt to a parent. A husband’s vow. How far will we go to satisfy our hearts’ desires?

Here’s the Walt Whitman poem that inspired this book.

I have perceiv’d that to be with those I like is enough,
To stop in company with the rest at evening is enough,
To be surrounded by beautiful, curious, breathing, laughing flesh is enough,
To pass among them or touch any one, or rest my arm ever so lightly round his or her neck for a moment, what is this then?
I do not ask any more delight, I swim in it as in a sea.
