This is a revised version of an old favorite… The story of Kevyn, an artist with a difficult limitation, and Rusty, a football player nearing the end of a surprisingly mediocre career. They meet when she’s seeking a god, a man to model for her latest cover illustration, and he’s half killing himself, trying to win a bet.
Sparks fly almost immediately, when she kidnaps him (or rescues him from his foolishness, depending on your point of view). They part, but can’t forget one another.
Each seems courageous in the lives they’ve chosen. But to be together, each must reach beyond the boundaries of their comfort zones and risk never being the same again.
I love this book. Not surprising – I love everything Burroughs writes!
