Summary "A provocative and haunting collection from critically acclaimed writer Lily Tuck, Heathcliff Redux explores, with cool precision, the hidden dynamics and unspoken conflicts at the heart of human relationships. In the title novella, a married woman readsWuthering Heights at the same time that she falls under the erotic and destructive spell of her own Heathcliff. In the stories that follow, a single photograph illuminates the intricate web of connections between friends at an Italian café; a forgotten act of violence in New York's Carl Schurz Park returns to haunt the present; and a woman is prompted by a flurry of mysterious emails to recall her time as a member of the infamous Rajneesh cult. With keen psychological insight and delicate restraint, Heathcliff Redux and Other Stories pries open the desires, doubts, and secret motives of its characters and exposes their vulnerabilities to the light. Sharp and unflinching, the novella and stories together form an exquisitely crafted collection from one ofour most treasured, award-winning writers"-- Provided by publisher
