A collection of primarily gay-themed stories set in San Francisco and North Carolina that ruminate on love. The linked stories in Damn Love introduce us to characters struggling with love in all its complicated forms, including a young doctor getting over a breakup with the help of a patient, a newly married gay man who reconnects with his estranged mother, a trio of physicists caught in a surprising love triangle, and a soldier who takes secrets with her to the Iraqi desert. Together, these stories report out from the fault lines of American life, uncertain territory where identity, risk, and desire comingle, and where reconciliation can be found in even the most flawed efforts to connect. Stories from this collection have been published in American Short Fiction, The Harvard Review, Crazyhorse and other publications.
