An Affair of the Heart
Each story in An Affair of the Heart questions the apparently romantic title through its exploration of the enigmatic state of mind known as love. Desire and identity; displacement - emotional and geographical; the relationship between ambition, circumstances and emotion; the often difficult co-existence of passion and intellect; these are the subjects of the fifteen fascinating narratives.
Men and women reckon the worth of relationships past and present, from steamy New Orleans to urbane Paris, from metropolitan Chelsea to the industrial valleys and rural hinterlands of Wales. Frank and delicate, revelatory and secret, Clare Morgan’s stories offer insights into human nature which are in turn punchily realistic and suggestively questioning.
