Written on the Body
The author does a careful job to conceal the gender of the main character, which leaves the reader to interpret how we perceive gender and love in our lives. She indicates that they have had both male and female lovers before coming across “the most beautiful creature male or female that I have ever seen.” The story follows their transcendent love story through ups and downs that challenge the reader to view love as magical and complex.
