Scenes from the Flesh, by Danny Lanzetta

Scenes from the Flesh is a novel about the dissolution of a marriage, inch by inch.

Told in a series of vignettes, Scenes from the Flesh uncovers the layers of a slowly accumulating despair. It begins with three distinct voices—all occurring on the same December day—one for each of the story’s protagonists: Roger, his wife Brenda, and their daughter Anna. Along the way, there are minor disappointments, major confrontations, and hints of an even more monstrous betrayal.

Scenes from the Flesh is a novel of deep-seated longing amidst the inertia of routine. It is a story about the diminishing returns of a love built on misguided pretenses as well as the tales we tell ourselves to salvage the remains.
