The Body Spoken
From its first extraordinary sentence -- a startling confession from one stranger to another -- this remarkable novel unfolds like a haunting cinematic dream. A man and a woman meet on a train bound for Los Angeles. Each is brimming with secrets; each is fleeing a life in ruins. No names are exchanged; the words that pass between them are tender, angry, sometimes teasing, passionate, and nakedly emotional. As their conversation grows more intimate and trusting -- and as the American countryside shifts past them through the train windows -- the astonishing details of this fascinating woman's life slip forth. The man's psyche becomes inextricably bound up with hers, and together they journey deeper into an interior landscape from which there is no easy return. The Body Spoken is an enthralling and seductive novel that reveals the essential nature of male and female. And it is an unforgettable portrait of a woman whose strength and spirit give her the power to transform lives -- including her own.
