An Eighth Day View:

In the title piece, A "A Well-Ordered Life", a young scholar visiting Rome with his beloved mentor wrestles with the older man's strange gift: a diary that reveals the most intimate details in the dying scholar's life. "The Stepmother" is a dark picaresque tale about a recently married woman who learns that her husband is not the man that she thought. "The Death of Christopher Moran" is a harrowing, existential crime novel about the murder of a porn star. The book's closing novella, "Madame du Barry and the Boys", is a story of a gay middle-aged man recalling his months as a university student in France, a time when he felt liberated from the poisonous turmoil of his family life and free to be happily.
