Summary

Here are three novellas of escape and exile, touching and funny and at times calculatedly outrageous. In ''Saturn Street,'' a disaffected L.A. screenwriter delivers lunches to homebound AIDS patients, only to find himself falling in love with one of them. In ''The Wooden Anniversary,'' Nathan and Celia - familiar characters from Leavitt's story collections - reunite after a five-year separation. And in ''The Term-Paper Artist,'' a writer named David Leavitt, hiding out at his father's house in the aftermath of a publishing scandal, experiences literary rejuvenation when he agrees to write term papers for UCLA undergraduates in exchange for sex.

With Mark Mitchell, he coedited The Penguin Book of Short Stories, Pages Passed from Hand to Hand, and cowrote Italian Pleasures. Leavitt is a recipient of fellowships from both the John Simon Guggenheim Foundation and the National Endowment for the Arts. He lives in Italy.
