About this title


In this second volume of the trilogy which opened with Beneath The Western Slopes, Patrick Roscoe brilliantly explores love as it is experienced by three generations of the Lopez family and their lovesick neighbours. While the objects of their desire are unlikely, if not fantastic, and the results of love's pursuit frequently devastating, the characters insist upon yearning one more time despite the hard lessons of history. Love Is Starving For Itself suggests that it is the everpresent, gnawing hunger for love which not only connects us to our landscape and each other, but allows us to transcend, however briefly, our past, present, and future.
