|DeliriumA Little Story About Love
Delirium is the narrative of a love story, told in poetic form. The author, when she was forty-eight, having been married for twenty-five years and having raised three children, fell in love with a young man, and he returned her love. The love affair did not last forever, but the effects of that love did last.
Delirium is joyous, sensual romantic, even erotic, and in the end bitterweet but still grateful for the ride.
