This new collection of stories offers a candid peek at infidelity in all its guises. These are tales of lust, deceit, resentment and regret - and of the secrets and lies that can chip away at human relationships. In a series of interwoven dramas, we find mothers yearning for adventure, for the exhilaration of the open road or the anonymity of the forest; fathers absent in body or mind; husbands who look the other way; complacency turned to spite and apathy turned to betrayal. At the same time Gunn pursues the glorious rush of a snap decision, the liberty of answering that siren call of a better life elsewhere. Written with Gunn's trademark attention to nuances of behaviour, motive and even landscape, Infidelity is a temptingly beautiful work that asks 'What if?' and dares to find out.

Do you think emotional affairs are more harmful than sexual affairs? Think about it; suddenly and unexpectedly you find out that someone else is or has been depending on your significant other for emotional attention, love and possibly financial support. Someone else is getting the love, support and attention you are supposed to be getting. Don’t you agree that your relationship may be at risk? See, if you have caught your significant other having a one night stand, or a temporary sexual affair, and (s) he decides to end it voluntarily, then it is up to you to decide to forgive and resume with your relationship. Perhaps, the two of you should revise and set new boundaries, or benefit from therapeutic interventions. However, with emotional affairs, is not that easy to forgive and move on, because you do not have sufficient and concrete evidence to prove your significant other’s emotional or sexual affairs, which tend to be elusive by nature. You can choose to remain emotionally trapped and deceived or demand respect and the truth.

Poetry. Fiction. This volume combines two separate books by Antonio Porta (1935-1989), one of the most original and provocative writers of modern Italy. The first book is KISSES FROM ANOTHER DREAM, a series of tough poetic commentaries, uninhibited and sometimes shocking. The second is DREAMS & OTHER INFIDELITIES, a collection of dreamlike, surrealist stories. The two works, written and originally published close together, exemplify the author's search for meaning and authenticity through language, imagination and fantasy. In his monumental study, The Western Canon, Harold Bloom lists KISSES FROM ANOTHER DREAM as one of the influential books of recent 20th-century Italian literature.

Here is a glorious assembly of infidelities, ranged under thematic headings that include Cravings, The Spouse's Shadow, Sex: Real and Imagined, Deception and After the Affair. It also offers a procession of historic affairs of the heart - an anatomy of the frailties and adulteries of the great and the good - from the battlements of Troy through the salons of Europe to today's corridors of power. Writers as diverse as Tolstoy, Hawthorne, Stendhal and Flaubert, along with John Updike, Martin Amis and Joseph Heller, are set alongside less familiar names writing about seduction, secrecy and broken promises. The reader will find scenes of tenderness and of sorrow, of bitterness and of rage, of ecstasy and of farce. The depravities of ancient Rome are compounded by the exuberant lust of the Earl of Rochester's poems. Edith Wharton asks advice of Henry James. Maria Callas falls for Onassis. Famous pairs represented range from Troilus and Cressida to Charles Stewart Parnell and Kitty O'Shea. We learn of the exploits of such famous adulterers as James Boswell, Lord Byron and Cecil Parkinson.

Tragicomedy of the highest order, this stellar collection is Croatian writer Novakovich's best ever. Hailed as one of the best short story writers of the 1990s, Josip Novakovich was praised by the New York Times for writing fiction that has "the crackle of authenticity, like the bite of breaking glass." In his new collection, he explores a war–torn Balkan world in which a schoolchild's innocence evaporates in a puff of cannon smoke, lust replaces love, and the joy of survival overrides all other pleasures. As Serb, Croat, and Bosnian Muslim armies clash in the cities and countryside of the former Yugoslavia, it's hard to tell the front lines from the home front. The characters in Infidelities––soldiers and civilians alike––are caught in the ridiculous, often cruelly whimsical contradictions of war and the paranoia and folly of those who conduct it. In "Ribs," a Croatian woman whose husband has already been taken by the war will go to any length to keep her son out of the army, including sleeping with the draft officer, a tryst that leads to an unexpected, and disturbing, spiritual vision. A Buddhist soldier in the Bosnian Muslim military isly accused of being an informer to the enemy Serbs after his detachment ambushes itself in "Hail." A draft dodger is in the hospital for a transplant, in "A Purple Heart," when a high–ranking Croatian general steals the heart for himself (and dies) while the dodger suddenly discovers a new thirst for life. In "Spleen," a Bosnian émigré in America learns that even in the throes of passion she cannot find release from the haunting memories of her homeland. These stories cover a broad sweep of time, reaching back to the first shots of World War I in Sarajevo and forward to the plight of Balkan immigrants in contemporary America. Throughout, acts of compassion, gallows humour, even desire arise from a landscape devastated by tragedy.

In the thirty-five years since the publication of The Bloody Chamber, Angela Carter’s reimagined fairy tales have inspired an impressive body of criticism. Yet none has addressed the ways her fairy tales grapple with and seek to overcome the near impossibility of heterosexual love and desire under patriarchy. In Erotic Infidelities: Love and Enchantment in Angela Carter’s The Bloody Chamber, author Kimberly J. Lau argues that the strangeness of Carter’s fairy-tale enchantments—the moments when love or erotic desire escape the deeply familiar, habitual structures and ideologies that contain them—show the momentary, fleeting possibilities for heterosexual love and desire. Lau begins by situating her reading of The Bloody Chamber—as individual stories and as a collection—within and against the critical literature, especially that which addresses Carter’s relationship to psychoanalytic theory and issues of language and desire. In chapter 2, she illustrates Carter’s construction of gender and language as labyrinthine structures—complex cultural edifices constructed and augmented over time. She moves on to consider Carter’s "feline stories" in chapter 3—"The Courtship of Mr. Lyon," "The Tiger’s Bride," and "Puss-in-Boots"—as an initial move away from the labyrinthine structures and toward an alternate erotics. In chapter 4, she reads "The Erl-King" and "The Snow Child" as another pair of mirrored tales, while chapter 5 elaborates on the pedophilic and necrophiliac fantasies of a pornographic culture, introduced in the previous chapter with the Count’s desire for the Snow Child. In chapter 6, Lau situates Carter’s three concluding stories—the wolf trilogy—within the context of feminist psychoanalytic understandings of infidelity as that which destabilizes patriarchal hegemonies and constructs. Lau argues that Carter’s "erotic infidelities" work against our culturally determined expectations and longings and usher us into welcome new enchantments. Situated at the intersection of feminist, psychoanalytic, literary, and fairy-tale studies, readers interested in a variety of scholarly disciplines as well as scholars of Carter’s tales will enjoy Lau’s look at enduring questions of gender, sexuality, and desire.
