Sinopsis: This collection of short stories spans 30 years of inner and outer exploration . . . of exotic places, spiritual spaces, and soul-searing embraces. It's Eat, Pray Love meets Water for Elephants, with quirky characters peppering the plots and calling the shots from Ubud to Udine. Encompassing ten years of writing, Body of Work contains some pieces previously published in the San Francisco Chronicle, Travelers' Tales, and Shamans Drum Magazine; and other stories seeing the light of day for the first time in this book. Body of Work's stories are grouped into Food, Spiritual Travel, Love/Death, and Remembrance/Transformation. Mostly autobiographical, at times experimental, hilarious, introspective and wise, Body of Work takes the reader running with the author on a near-marital workout in Cusco, Peru; through the gauntlet of snapping wild hounds at sunrise in Ubud, Bali; and literally off a runway in her modeling days in Boston. Through it all, author Michele Fontaine manages to find a humble place in the universe, a connection with all of humanity, and a good laugh. Follow Michele on her day and a half working for author Danielle Steele . . . her big night out at Studio 54 in the 1980's . . . sweet memories of her mother's spring cleaning rituals in the 1960's. With self-deprecating humor, loving detail about a mother's memory, and an ability to turn even a chocolate addiction into a life lesson, Michele takes pen in hand again to gently, laughingly, achingly, and sometimes slyly and passionately explore the depths of humanness.
About the Author: Michele Fontaine is an award-winning writer and author of two novels: Harem Sister and Fire of Isis. Her work has been featured in Shamans Drum magazine, the San Francisco Chronicle, and Travelers' Tales. She lives in Marin County, CA and Westport, MA.
