Grant Erikssen likes women, but he doesn't claim to understand them. He can only chronicle his encounters, and their long-lasting effects, as he seeks to unlock their secrets. In Adrift on the River of Love, author Erik Granstrøm presents a collection of fi fteen fi ctionalized short stories as a tribute to many of the girls Grant knew as a boy, the women he met later as a Lieutenant in the army and, still later, the women he loves as a man.
In this work, covering more than sixty years, each vignette illustrates women who changed Erikssen's life forever, as they kindled his emotions and gave him rare insights into life. Combined with the themes throughout of affection and desire, Adrift muses about unrequited love-the kind of love that, as the days dwindle down, we come to cherish most of all.
