Annotation Isabel and Al are stuck in a dead-end relationship, woefully unsuited for each other (she's training to be a heart surgeon and he's a burnt-out filmmaker working at a video store), but unable to break it off. To this end, Isabel concocts a list of 10 outlandish things to do (group sex, psychedelics, etc.), with the idea that once the list is over they can part ways. However as their activities become increasingly strange, dark, and abusive (and the list keeps expanding) their love twists and grows in unexpected ways.
Editors Note The List is an irreverent, sophisticated take on the classic breakup story. In fierce and exquisite prose, Tara Ison has written an astonishing story of love and hate.Isabel is finishing medical school and destined to become a brilliant heart surgeon. Al is a video store clerk, a one-hit-wonder director whose first and only film became a cult classic. Their electric, passionate, and deeply maddening relationship can't possibly work. Tired of endlessly coming together and breaking up, they make a list of ten things to do before they finally say good-bye. But after a few perfect dates the list takes a dark turn, and their plan spirals out of control as they realize they would rather destroy each other than let go.
