Absence Makes the Heart
Absence Makes the Heart is a selection of Lynne Tillman's short fiction, written over a ten-year period. Understated and ironic, her work is as funny as it is disturbing as she coolly takes aim at art, sex, memory and death. In 'Other Movies' an East Village street becomes a film set, where everyday life appropriates popular culture, while the underground classic 'Weird Fucks' comically and poignantly chronicles the female 'I' on the road for love and sex. Tillman?s script for the feature film Committed (which she co-directed) digs into America?s uneven past through the imagined life of the movie star Frances Farmer.
