in the most painful of places the heartThe Ravishing of Lol Stein in simple terms is a love story but those who are familiar with her work will know she writes in a stark minimal style with short sentencing but one in a most profoundly haunting way There are three main viewpoints looking in from the outside yes it s a tale of love but also a voyeuristic mystery and a nostalgic trip own memory

characters and on the narrator s attempts to understand the history of the enigmatic Lol Stripped of climax and enouement the story elevates memory and sexual tension over enigmatic Lol Stripped of climax and enouement the story elevates memory and sexual tension over actionLol Stein is a reserved young woman engaged to wed but at a ball her love abandons Lol for a mysterious older woman Lol is
