Eros is the energy that makes the world go round. These sensuous stories trace its flow: two girls and a mother pursue the same man…an aunt seduces her nephew…a labor dispute catches fire in a motel room… a son loans his porn star fiancée to his father… students and faculty long for the school nurse…a great writer can’t let go of a greater one…and a fish in the sea summons a man to his wife.
