In Immaculate Man, an agnostic New York divorcee finds herself in thrall to an unexpected passion for a Catholic priest--who is also desired by a former superior--and who becomes unmoored by the affair. Living at Home is set in London, and depicts the strange union between an English woman--a thrice-divorced doctor who works with autistic children--and an Italian man--a free-roaming journalist addicted to high-risk assignments. The title novella centers on the memories of an elderly Italian woman, recalling her days as a girl in the bloom of first love, who embarked on a suicide pact with her boyfriend, but was the only one not to follow through.
