Description:

A fevered storyteller and a captive audience revisit the past in each of David Grossman's new novellas, trying to make sense of a betrayal that neither one can put to rest. In Frenzy, a reserved and respectable man draws his sister-in-law into a paranoid conviction--that his wife is having an affair. In the title novella, a successful but embittered novelist delivers a merciless account of her dying mother's love affair with a much younger teenage boy. "Suffused with delirious tension and characters more substantial than in most novels twice its size"(The Village Voice), Her Body Knows examines the anatomy of infidelity and desire.
