It’s August, so I am feeling nostalgic about Provincetown. It’s been a while since I’ve been, but for a number of years, my boyfriend, friends and I would rent a house for a week and fill it with love, food, laughter and sex (not necessarily in that order).
Provincetown has always been such a magical place for me that I wanted to write about its transformative powers. “The Sun in Our Bodies” explores the pull of the seaside village on one couple’s relationship.
Those of you who have read The Family Way might notice similar characters or plot points. I wrote this short story while also writing the novel, so I guess each is inspired by the other.
