“I like the feel of the blade popping through the tight skin. Slicing through the flesh. I like licking the juice off it.”
Having survived the devastation of the Great Depression and the broken promises of the war, Tom and Elizabeth are deeply in love – but deeply in crisis. Elizabeth is leaving. Consumed by brutal violence and unbridled passion, they confront the memories that make up their lives, and the choices that lead them to this moment. Lyrical, savage, erotic, and totally unique, SKIN TIGHT is the story of two wild lovers spinning recklessly into the unknown.
