dc.description.abstract Dana, a woman in her early 40s, has reached a critical point in her life. Grappling with a severe illness, she lies in bed for hours on end, reconstructing her past. Her only antidote is her memories of the four lovers who mark the various stages of her sexual development. What effect have they had on her? How do her choices reflect who she is? Can she distinguish between her own desires and those that society has conditioned her to have? Clinging to the details of her life, Dana is at once marshaling her sanity and attempting to make sense of her choices, her achievements, and her failures. In a patchwork of intricate storytelling, associatively interweaving past and present, she recounts the stories that have shaped her. en_US
