Jim Another strange story about a poet - I'm seeing a pattern here...

A struggling poet heads to a northern Mexican province to tour some creative writing programs. A friend recommended him as a possible instructor, so he is there scoping out the situation. The woman who directs the program is mysterious and possibly dangerous. She wants to be a poet but doesn't feel supported by her husband. There is both a sexual tension and a dark sense of menace in the book, but it's hard to locate exactly where the danger is coming from. A good story!
