Four years after her critically acclaimed novelEvening, Susan Minot gives us a new work of startling intimacy and precision. Using a single interlude--a brief encounter of old lovers; two bodies entwined on a bed at midday--Minot defines the distance that erupts at what seems to be the height of connection, as well as the extent to which the senses deceive, and the intensely private eroticism of fantasy and the imagination. Minot's lovers are mesmerizing in their individual journeys--one moving toward a kind of holy consummation, the other toward abnegation and blank despair. This is the wayward history of their efforts to make contact with each other while deluding themselves about the nature of the contact they're making. Graphic, erotic, provocative,Raptureis a meditation on romantic love, sex, and their reflections in the life of the mind.
