Touchy Subjects by Professor Emma Donoghue

Book Description

In this sparkling collection of nineteen stories, the bestselling author of Slammerkin returns to contemporary affairs, exposing the private dilemmas that result from some of our most public controversies. A man finds God and finally wants to father a child only his wife is now forty-two years old. A coach s son discovers his sexuality on the football field. A repressed young woman finds liberation in her roommate s bizarre secret. Many of these stories involve animals and what they mean to us, or babies and whether to have them; some reimagine biblical plots in modern contexts. With characters old, young, straight, gay, and simply confused, Donoghue dazzles with her range and her ability to touch lightly but penetrate deeply into the human condition."
