Island Fruit Remedy
What might it take for a spurned fantasist to find hearth and home?
On the Key, Wood encounters women with the names and personalities of tropical fruit. Each holds a mirror up to his romantic ideas, and with one, he forms a deep connection.
But the mystery of the elusive Papaya is a fantasy he can’t set aside, and it threatens to destroy everything—until, in his greatest moment of need, Wood conjures the ultimate teacher . . .
With burlesque flair and keen insight, Island Fruit Remedy rewards the reader with an unexpectedly sober discovery about the creative act of finding and keeping love.
About Island Fruit Remedy
Q: Our protagonist, Wood, is a fantasist. It takes him some time to see his romantic fantasies for what they are. One has to wonder: do you write from experience?
RS: If you’re going for the truth, there’s no other way.
Q: It’s a difficult journey for him, but he finds home and hearth.
RS: He does. In a way, Island Fruit Remedy is a counterstatement to Rin, Tongue and Dorner. Wood finds what Dorner does not. The remedy is truthful to me, because that’s how I experienced it. Finding home and hearth is difficult if it’s not part of your childhood.
