Feast of Love is just that--a sumptuous work of fiction
about the thing that most distracts and delights us. In a
re-imagined Midsummer Night's Dream, men and women
speak of and desire their ideal mates; parents seek out their
lost children; adult children try to come to terms with their
own parents and, in some cases, find new ones.
vignettes both comic and sexy, the owner of a coffee shop
recalls the day his first wife seemed to achieve a moment
of simple perfection, while she remembers the women's softball
game during which she was stricken by the beauty of the shortstop.
A young couple spends hours at the coffee shop fueling the
idea of their fierce love. A professor of philosophy, stopping
by for a cup of coffee, makes a valiant attempt to explain
what he knows to be the inexplicable workings of the human
heart. Their voices resonate with each other--disparate people
joined by the meanderings of love--and come together in a
tapestry that depicts the most irresistible arena of life.
