AbstractHistoryArchive Description

'A collection of nine sensual, witty and mystical stories marking Tobsha Learner′s return to the short story format after the international success of both Quiver and Tremble, and exploring the universal experiences of obsession, romantic encounters and secret regrets. A movie star longs for anonymity; a Sydney sculptor wonders whether a lover can be summoned by the act of artistic creation; a California call-centre worker seeks an online release in Second Life; a London weatherman inspires both obsessive lust and devastating storms; and an eighteenth-century biographer discovers a magic, erotic ritual which will change his life forever ...

'In Yearn, the line between reality and imagination is blurred by the power of fantasy and desire.' (From the publisher's website.)
