Winner of the 1997 McNally Robinson Book of the Year Award.
Catherine Hunter articulates complex questions with utter simplicity, releasing the passion that often lies beneath the surfaces of our ordinary lives, and guiding us, through subtle connections on many different levels, until we "can hear the city breathe." Latent Heat presents a surprisingly full and lyrical exploration of the lives we live together in this place, the suffering, the confusion, and those evanescent moments that sustain us.
