THE STORY: ROGER & MIRIAM follows the lives of a suburban mother and her awkward son for more than twenty years. From summer camp, to finding new love after AIDS has robbed us of our innocence. Roger and Miriam confide in each other through a series of letters, often funny, sometimes tragic. While their paths are very different—Miriam experimenting with extra-marital affairs, Roger holding on to a childhood ideal of love—they both, ultimately come to a similar conclusion. “We were two people, touching,” that’s what mattered. (1 man, 1 woman.)
Included in The Eros Trilogy.
