Summary (From the publisher):

The love stroy (as well as the story of love lost, obsessed over, or longed for) gets a complete and thrilling renovation in Indelible Acts.

A.L. Kennedy's men and women huddle in foreign hotel rooms, immobilized by travel-sickness and betrayal. They plan seductions on the line at a cheese shop. They're undone by a passing embrace in the office men's room. Their passion is so urgent and imperious that it invades the stories they tell their children.
