Product Overview

While sitting on a French terrace overlooking a three-hundred-year-Old olive grove at sunset, a man listens as his wife confesses her love for someone else Preparing to leave after twenty years of marriage, she details her erotic and emotional life, a confession that leaves her husband spent, but delirious with love for her. The imminent loss of the passion of his life leads him to experience the power of desire, grief, and flushed fixation?and thus begins this riveting monologue at the end of a marriage, one that is mesmerizing with anger and regret.

Negative Space joins Steiner's earlier fictions-Such as Bathers, Dread, and The Catastrophe?in evoking the dark texture and brilliant detail of erotic loss. The result is an exploration of heartbreak and sexual obsession the reader will not soon forget.

"Dramatic events are subtly intertwined with the quotidian, giving them a spellbinding power...completely absorbing."?The New York Times Book Review on Dread

"Robert Steiner has written an astonishing work in a style dark and gorgeous. He is a master of the sensual."?Los Angeles Times

"Steiner's prose is taut, his imagery striking and original. He makes the world tilt, provides a new way of seeing."?North American Review on Passion
