Timothy Leary calls LICKING OUR WOUNDS "...poignant and hilarious: adventures simmering with passion, sweet sorrows, and raw, moist sexual expression rarely seen in literary works by women." It is the age of AIDS and Maria is just trying to survive. One by one her friends are dying, her lover has disappeared and Maria can't seem to figure out how to cope with her grief. Aided by Peter, a man living an elaborate lie, and Christie, a techno junkie with a unique version of truth, she discovers the depths of desire and the roots of longing. But only two men will be able to teach her about love and help Maria find the true woman inside. Erotic and emotional, LICKING OUR WOUNDS is an exploration of the female sexual soul.
