I Want to Show You More

224 pages; Grove Press
Jamie Quatro's I Want to Show You More (Grove) dives beneath the surface of everyday life to access subverted desire, spiritual yearning, and unrequited lust. In "Georgia the Whole Time," a woman dying of cancer graciously accepts that it might be easier to "make the wreckage look beautiful than to keep fighting and lose."
