Schlink, internationally acclaimed and bestselling author of "The Reader, " brings a sleek concision and moral acuity to these seven tales of modern men uneasily suspended between the desire for love and the impulse toward flight. Brooding, comic, and filled with psychological suspense, "Plights of Love" is nothing less than masterful.
