In the short stories of Rikki Ducornet, desire takes on many forms: an ivory chessboard, the Stations of the Cross, a fleeting glance at an unknown woman. And it happens in many different times and places, from turn-of-the-century Mexico to 1930s upstate New York. The 12 stories collected in The Word "Desire" examine the many aspects of passion: betrayed love, cowardly love, transcendent love--they're all here in Ducornet's erotic universe, described in rich, lyrical prose.About the Author:
Rikki Ducornet was born in New York and has lived in North Africa, South America, Canada and France. Her work as an illustrator first came to the attention of the Canadian book trade in 1974 with the publication of Susan Musgrave's "Gullband". In 1983, the Porcupine's Quill commissioned Rikki to illustrate an edition of Jorge Luis Borges' "Tlon, Uqbar, Orbis Tertius".
Rikki is the author of three short-story collections, seven books of poetry, and seven novels, including "The Fan-Maker's Inquisition" and "The Jade Cabinet". She is also a painter whose work has been exhibited widely. She currently lives in Denver, Colorado.
