Widow Elizabeth Overfield and Colin Handrich, Lord Hodges, are both surprised when their sled topples them into a snowbank and they end up sharing an unexpected kiss. They know there is no question of any relationship between them, for she is nine years older than him. They return to London the following Season, both committed to finding other more suitable matches. Still, they agree to share one waltz at each ball they attend. This innocuous agreement proves to be one that will topple their worlds....

Her melodious droning sucked the life or of the story. I found Colin's voicing unintentionally funny. Just not a goo narration.

In February 2014, Reni Eddo-Lodge posted an impassioned argument on her blog about her deep-seated frustration with the way discussions of race and racism in Britain were constantly being shut down by those who weren't affected by it. She gave the post the title 'Why I'm No Longer Talking to White People About Race'. Her sharp, fiercely intelligent words hit a nerve, and the post went viral, spawning a huge number of comments from people desperate to speak up about their own similar experiences.

Great read@ I learned, as a organizer in the movement for Black Lives Matter, that although we have different cultural and historical experiences, our experiences with white privilege, police brutality, structural and systemic racism are almost the same.

In this heartbreakingly beautiful book of disillusioned intimacy and persistent yearning, beloved and celebrated author Andre Dubus III explores the bottomless needs and stubborn weaknesses of people seeking gratification in food and sex, work and love. In these linked novellas in which characters walk out the back door of one story and into the next, love is "dirty" - tangled up with need, power, boredom, ego, fear, and fantasy.

  • This one was tough to get through, because it rips your heart out.

What disappointed you about Dirty Love?

First story was repetitive and should have been edited more. The author's tone of voice made it very hard for me to listen, just grating, lackadaisical, whining and irritating to me. I stopped after 6 plus hours and could not bring myself to finish. Please hire someone like Scott Brick.

Would you be willing to try another one of Andre Dubus III’s performances?

No

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dirty Love?

Edit the first story. Way too much internal dialogue.
