Publisher's Summary

The Many Loves of Duane Vorhees is the psychic poetic skeleton of a prose novel about the phases of love (love sought, love gained, love lost, love shared, love spurned), without any of the manifest trappings of setting, plot, characters, etc., all of which any listener can easily supply autobiographically. When the particulars are removed, the universal remains. It has eight sections, each representing a stage of development.

Beth is about romantic, adolescent love which is more about longing and yearning rather than actualization. Jenny depicts the less innocent, more destructive form of lust and maturity that follows. Yeobo traces a marriage, its mysteries, its moments of passion and boredom, its starts and spurts. Its dissolution. It dissects midlife crisis, "playing the field," the search for sexual re-ignition, the fantasies, successes, and rejections of an aging former boy. Grace represents a confusedly hopeful culmination of that search, unfortunately followed by O, Dark Lady, the despair and depression that accompanies the recognition of a failing physique and the end of love's promise. Sally is the late blooming of love's potential. The cycle ends with Sirinya, at last - evidence that it's never too late to find love's genuine accomplishment.
