Summary

Summary

Set in San Francisco and North Carolina, the linked stories in Damn Love introduce characters struggling with love in all its complicated forms, including a young doctor getting over a breakup with the help of a patient, a newly married gay man who reconnects with his estranged mother, a trio of physicists caught in a surprising love triangle, and a soldier who takes secrets with her to the Iraqi desert. Together, these stories report out from the fault lines of American life, uncertain territory where identity, risk, and desire commingle, and where reconciliation can be found in even the most flawed efforts to connect.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This is an extraordinary debut.” Peter Turchi, author of Maps of the Imagination
“Jasmine Beach-Ferrara’s linked stories will sneak up and steal your breath away with their clear and seemingly easy accumulation of grace. Damn Love is important for its delicate, honest portrayals of friends and relations, gay and straight, measuring the good, and trying to find acceptance in everyday American life.” Tracy Winn, author of Mrs. Somebody Somebody
Damn Love is much more than a collection of linked stories: it’s a collection of linked people, bound together in beautiful ordinary passion and rendered with exquisite generosity by a writer with a big, brave heart.” Chris Adrian, author of The Great Night
“Whether she’s writing about gay or straight relationships, the dynamics of family ties or friendships, Beach-Ferrara’s exploration of the numerous types of love are spot-on in her debut short story collection.” Kirkus Reviews
“Smart, painful, and impressive in its scope, Damn Love explores what happens when relationships implode and leave a person no choice but to move forward.” ForeWord
“The characters in these linked stories navigate love and loss with a touching urgency that feels particularly American.” People
