This. This. This. Is. Love. Love. Love. (Paperback)
Published by Split/Lip Press, This. This. This. Is. Love. Love. Love. contains thirteen stories, full-length and flash, that explore love-sexual, platonic, filial, and beyond-in its gritty and beguiling forms. A small-town teenager pursues an eccentric pinball wizard after her grandfather's move to her home shakes up her parents' marriage; a chronic depressive turns to a TV animal psychic in hopes of mending her relationship with her dog-loving dad; a middle-aged recovering alcoholic goes back to college and becomes fixated on his stern professor. Throughout the collection, as characters in various stages of life try to navigate love, they court obsession, madness, and transcendence.
