Celia was that girl, every bar has one, the strange girl, the beautiful girl, the untouchably perfect girl. When Ernie learns her secret--that she can invest her lovers with the spirits of dead authors--he must choose between true love and literary genius. From Aurora Award-winner Helen Marshall s Hair Side, Flesh Side, this short story is one of a set of fifteen quirky and cutting parables about history, memory, and the cost of creating art.
