Jamie Quatro - Fire Sermon

Upcoming Event
Sunday, February 11, 2018 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm

Quatro’s eagerly awaited first novel is as reflective as it is physical, as cerebral as it is sexy—in other words, a fitting follow-up to the bold stories of I Want To Show You More. Charting a passionate affair that’s as pre-occupied with religion as it is with desire, the narrative is told in letters, emails, journal entries, prayers, transcripts of therapy sessions, and, yes, a fire sermon. The story follows Maggie and James, both writers, parents, and both already married to others, as their literary attraction evolves into adultery. Maggie, raised evangelical and deeply Christian, is torn by the conflict between her beliefs and her needs, and her struggle to put her infidelity into a larger moral context leads to a provocative and intensely charged account of how eros and divinity fuel each other.
