Listing Detail Tabs

This is an auction for SOUL by Tobsha Learner.

“Playwright and fiction author Learner, who combined heresy and persecution with illicit love and torture in ‘The Witch of Cologne’ (2005), again turns her talent to portraying human passion in crisis, this time posing the question: Are we physiologically predisposed to behave a certain way? Geneticist Julia Huntington works on a government project to identify the gene that links to posttraumatic stress syndrome. The goal is to help the military identify soldiers best fit for battle—those who can kill without remorse. Three generations earlier, Julia’s great-grandmother, Lavinia, was executed for the murder of her estranged husband. But was she guilty? When Julia’s husband leaves her for another woman, she learns firsthand how a possibly inherited killing rage overcomes reason. The parallel stories work well together to graphically illustrate the nature-versus-nurture debate, and the government involvement in the gene project is a sinister reminder of a potential misuse of science. Steamy sex scenes, accoutrements of horror (shrunken heads, native masks, and drugs), and fascinating glimpses of genetics and phrenology make this a page-turner.”
