DESIRE BY NUMBERS

ART BY NAN GOLDIN

FICTION BY KLAUS KERTESS

Desire By Numbers counterpoints Nan Goldin’s photographs of teenage sex-workers in Southwest Asia against Klaus Kertess’ short story about the failures of language, love, and desire. Photography as memory is played off against writing as memory, the verifiability of one medium becomes the illusion of another, as two characters argue about sex and end by fighting for the love of a man already dead.
