Summary "In this wide-ranging collection of essays, stories, graphic memoir, and cross-genre work, writers explore the deeply human act of kissing. The sublime kiss. The ambiguous kiss. The devastating kiss. The kiss we can't take back. The kiss we can never give. The kiss that changes a life... Here, writers and thinkers share their thoughts on a specific kiss -- the unexpected and unforgettable -- in an attempt to connect us to one another: to explore the messy and complicated intimacies that exist in our actual lives, as well as in the complicated landscape of the imagination." -- From book jacket.
