  • About the Edition

    It is the story of a man in prison who falls in love, through lengthy correspondence, with a woman he"s never met. Getting out, he goes to find her and discovers that the love letters he"s received were written not by a woman but by a closeted gay man -- a small town minister. Not only did the minister deceive the prisoner, but he sent a photograph of his sister (who lives with him) as a picture representing himself. And not only is the sister unaware of the ruse, but she herself happens to be a lesbian. The ex-prisoner has fallen in love physically with a woman who doesn"t know he exists, and mentally with a man he doesn"t know how to love. Set in the scenic Texas Gulf Coast fishing village of Rockport, it is a darkly humorous and contemplative examination of the parameters of love, sex, sexuality and cultural perspective.
