Decadence meets longing when a modern Circe meets up with her mortality, setting off a desperate hunt for self-assurance...and for meaning.
As an Avon Lady, Diane's craft is practiced, personable, and perfect--which is good, since she's determined to prep her "awful" husband's make-up for his funeral.
But will altering the way Rodger gets remembered really make up for the fact that he's gone? Or the fact that Diane, a modern Mona Lisa, couldn't keep her man? For now, Diane is sure the proof is in the powder.
And the truth is only skin deep, after all...
The Hunt is approximately 3,500 words, and was inspired by the short stories of Eudora Welty -- specifically "Circe" and "Petrified Man".
