Jasmine Beach-Ferrara Reading & Signing at Malaprop's Bookstore

22 Jun 2013

Saturday, June 22 at 7 pm
The interconnected stories in Damn Love introduce us to characters struggling with love in all its complicated forms, including a young doctor getting over a breakup with the help of a patient, a newly married gay man who reconnects with his estranged mother, a trio of physicists caught in a surprising love triangle, and a soldier who takes secrets with her to the Iraqi desert. Damn Love navigates the uncertain territory where identity, risk, and desire comingle, and where reconciliation can be found in even the most flawed efforts to connect. One of the stories in Damn Love, "Hit Me," was a notable story in Best American Short Stories, 2008. Beach-Ferrara is the executive director of the Campaign for Southern Equality which promotes LGBT rights in the South.
