Robin Beeman ably manipulates style and structure in her complex and suspenseful novella, The Lost Art of Desire, awarded the 2000 Texas Review Novella Prize. Set in a lush Mexican jungle (Beeman herself studied and taught in Mexico), the book chronicles the adventures of a pair of lovers on a vacation that turns into something more, elegantly combining introspective philosophical meditation with a fast-moving, entertaining plot.
