Anxious Love

Anxious Love

By Anthony Maulucci

Twelve stories about the lives of people who struggle with the demons of love, desire, disappointment, and loneliness. A dying American artist asks his wife to dedicate her life to his legacy, a young woman falls in love with her female mentor, two children create a fantasy world in a public park, a science fiction writer finds and loses his muse on a deserted beach, a middle-aged woman is unwilling to become her aging husband’s caretaker — each of the main characters in these contemporary tales must find the strength to survive in a complex and confusing world.
