Parachute Silk: Friends, Food, Passion, A Novel In Letters
Gina Mercer

Molly and Finn are passionate friends – and have been for over twenty years. They write to each other about lovers, risotto, mothering, and the many pleasures of the body. They write feisty letters – gossiping outrageously, arguing fiercely, exchanging present intimacies and past secrets. Finn, at Molly’s insistence, tells of her past love affairs in delicious detail. But there is one story that Finn cannot bear to tell. That is, until outside events force this secret from her. There are contradictions and difficulties within this friendship, yet it survives. It billows out – as tough, beautiful and necessary as parachute silk to a pair of skydivers.

In stock.
