Sensual fables of the mystical and sinister
TREMBLE is a collection of interlinked stories that cover both the magical and the erotic: an insatiable property developer; a miraculous birth on the shores of the Mediterranean; a jaded controversial rainmaker in a drought-ridden Oklahoma town. The sacred and the profane, the deeply and even fatally erotic.
Sydney Morning Herald: “What makes this work different from many in the genre is that it’s also very funny. Learner, who trained as a sculptor before moving into literary areas, brings a dry wit to her characters and situations.”
