@Frank Stayed tuned. Tomorrow I post the first 500-900 words of Chapter One.

Monroe, this opening reminds me of Stuart Dybek's book "The Coast of Chicago," the chapter "The Woman Who Fainted" where Dybek uses a church service as as setting to sketch out a teenager's sex fantasy with a specific woman attending the service. Basically both authors convey the sharp contrast of having a sober-looking outside appearance while the mind considers "taboo" behavior.

John: I'm not familiar with "The Coast of Chicago." I'll have to check it out.
