9781933500126: Making Love in Madrid: A Novella (Conversation Pieces, Volume 17)

With Making Love in Madrid, Kimberly Todd Wade makes her fictional debut. Anna Tambour, author of The Spotted Lily and Monterra's Deliciosa and Other Tales, describes the novella as ''a fantasia of amnesia, of lives that need filling, of writers of every tense, of talent and dry lemons and melted cheese; of giggling and tangled sheets and denture adhesive, competition and tenderness, a bloodless bullfight, the power of a giant smile to diminish greatness--a modern mannerist story around a story.''

About the Author:

Kimberly Todd Wade earned a degree in anthropology from the University of Miami and performed graduate studies at Tulane University. She worked as an archaeologist for fourteen years, including field work in Belize, Hawaii, and Palau. In addition to writing, she is a student of American finger-style guitar and a lover of blues and ragtime music.

Review:

Making Love in Madrid is a lyrical metafictional piece...often quite beautiful. --Locus, May 2007

[I]f you enjoy this story, it won't be for the characters, it will be for the affect. If I'd got around to reading the copy of Ice by Anna Kavan that I've had sitting in my TBR pile for the past couple of months, I suspect I'd be making a comparison with Wade's novella; as it is, the writer I've read most recently whose work was called to mind by Making Love in Madrid is Zoran Zivkovic, most particularly in the sense that the uncertain landscape and strange events described have some meaning just beyond my grasp. --Niall Harrison (editor of Vector), Torque Control, September 21, 2007
