Rapture by Susan Minot

Rapture

Susan Minot

The progress of a love story from both participants' point of view, recalled by them during one intimate act. This takes place after the end of the love affair and is an interesting contrast between what is happening in the present and the thoughts and feelings that developed in the past.
