The Girl with Too Many Names

A college professor commits suicide after murdering his student lover, Romeo and Juliet style. Or is it a double suicide pact? Now the occupant of the abandoned house finds a stash of emails between the two dead lovers, which he hopes will unravel the mystery. A story of erotic passion unfolds, of first love and sexual exploration…. or exploitation and abuse, depending on who you believe. The new occupant of the house finds he has opened Pandora’s box, and learns more than he ever wanted to know, a knowledge that will haunt him forever.

THE CRITICS RAGE

Two star-cross’d lovers take their lives…or do they? A modern cross between Romeo and Juliet and Bridges of Madison County….

Warning! This novel is hot as molten lava! And as destructive. Let it cool before you read it. Or better still, avoid reading it at all.

*

A tale told masterfully in their own voices. But what is true and what is illusion, and how do we read this tale of lust and love?

Cavedaschi pulls the reader into the uncomfortable position of voyeur. The reader of the emails is morally complicit, voyeuristic, and so by default are we, the readers of the novel. We are not sure whether to spit in the face of the writer of the emails or to empathize with him. We are not sure whether to live into the girl’s plight, or like her mother, yank her out of the clutches of her lover. We are not sure whether to believe the emails themselves and the reality created. Are these two paranoid? Are they being stalked by people wanting to kill them, or are they going to kill themselves in the self-delusion of love that enshrouds them? And finally, we are not sure we should even be reading their emails at all. Are we then just as predatory and complicit as the narrator and the writer himself? But too late! Cavedaschi injects the addictive drug into our veins and we are hooked.
