From the author of the bestselling novel "Best Friends" comes this smart, touching tale about the intimate yet fragile relationships among five very different people thrown together in a small medical office, and how each life affects the others.
From the Publisher:
Having developed a close friendship through their work at an Ohio medical practice, Alicia, Brice, and Caroline find their personal and professional dynamics dramatically shifting when Alicia begins an affair with one of their employers. By the author of Best Friends. Reprint.From the national bestselling author of Best Friends: a touching novel about five very different people navigating work?and life.||Alicia, Brice, and Caroline are the ABCs?three close friends who have been brought together while working at the cozy medical practice of Drs. Markowitz and Strub in Midburg, Ohio. But when Alicia and Dr. Strub begin an affair, a dramatic chain of events ensues that gradually but drastically changes the office environment?ultimately requiring all five coworkers to redefine their relationships to one another. Finally, a questionable business venture precipitates a tragedy that will either tear them apart or bring them closer together.|| Touching and insightful, The Office of Desire will resonate with anyone who has ever experienced the unlikely alliances that develop at work, and seen what happens when those relationships are altered.
Annotation:
A small Ohio medical practice goes horribly awry as its flawed but sympathetic employees succumb to misguided passion and religious zealotry. Narrated by the warmhearted, one-legged receptionist and the grieving head doctor, THE OFFICE OF DESIRE begins as a sharp comedy but soon veers into true dysfunction and genuine suffering.

Praise

"A provocative, intensely moving novel of ideas and opposing philosophies presented by deeply flawed, deeply human characters." (starred review) 06/01/2007
