Rules—and ruins—of attraction. From Nicola Waldron’s memoir of the summons of first love, to Peter LaSalle’s unsettling fiction of literary erotics, to J. D. Daniels’s story of jealous transgression, Erica Funkhauser’s poems channeling John Berryman’s devastations, and the light of Vermeer refracted by poet Circe Maia.
