1100 Congress Avenue, AUSTIN Texas
In the fiction of Virginia Reeves (The Behavior or Love) and Ivelisse Rodriguez (Love War Stories), the pressures and expectations of community bear down on stories of love and romantic relationships. A behavioral therapist grows too close to a patient; a new generation of Puerto Rican women embark on journeys of desire with the experiences of their mothers at their backs. What responsibilities does love have to family, friends, and community?
