Can I Come Home with You

Marie Aubert

In these nine stories the distance is short from longing to shamelessness,  and from shamelessness to transgression.

A worn-out father hits his daughter and tries to stop her from telling others. A sixteen year old girl sneaks into somebody else’s house. A young woman has bruises on her body and doesn’t know if she likes it. A man goes to South America with his wife to adopt a boy, but finds himself drawn to a slightly too old girl.

The stories in Marie Aubert’s first book are about people on the verge of  breaking out – from friendships, marriages and relationships. They all do things they are ashamed of, while clinging to the idea that they are leaving for something greater.
