In "Mastiff," a woman and a man are joined in an erotic bond forged out of terror and gratitude. "Sex with Camel" explores how a sixteen-year-old boy realizes the depth of his love for his grandmother--and how vulnerable those feelings make him. Fearful that that her husband is "disappearing" from their life, a woman becomes obsessed with keeping him in her sight in "The Disappearing." "A book of martyrs" reveals how the end of a pregnancy brings with it the end of a relationship. And in the title story, the elderly Robert Frost is visited by an interviewer, an unsettling young woman, who seems to know a good deal more about his life than she should. A piercing and evocative collection, Lovely, dark, deep reveals an artist at the height of her creative power.

While the prose is nice, almost all the stories have no plot, or open questions that never get closed. Tried to read 7 of the stories before I realised I was wasting my time.

short story "Disappearing" can disappear altogether. Didn't make any sense
