'The Memory of Marble' is a collection of ten stories that examine
the boundaries we create between passion and obsession. The people
in the stories seek refuge from emotions by cocooning themselves in
the worlds of books, pianos, art, and fingerprints. A dying man
imagines he can smell the history of graveside monuments, a fresco
restorer battles madness as his diseased skin appears on the
paintings he loves, and a blind book collector's world collapses
when he discovers an insect incubating on a page. They inhabit
arcane worlds that explode with sensation and sensuality. Praise
