Love is always worth the risk.
From the award-winning author of The Fish Tales and the Venery series comes Love and Bravery, a collection of flash fiction pieces.
"This little book is a collection of love bites, if you will. Most of these can’t be called stories because they lack a proper arc. But they focus on little isolated moments in time, capturing the middle of the action without worrying much where things started or where they’ll end up. They all touch on the notion of bravery. Because love is always worth the risk."
From a joyful retiree in Bali to a terrified journalist in Syria, Laqueur explores romantic courage. A blind date in Manhattan. A secret crush in Canada. An ancient aphrodisiac in St. Lucia. A Brazilian street block during Carnavale. A box seat at the Paris Opera...
How far will you go for your heart's desire? How passionate a chance will you take?
"This selection of nibbles are lovely and full of different flavours of delightful, moving, sexy, and fun. Whether you're familiar with Laqueur's works or wanting to test the waters, this is definitely worth reading."
