Samson and Delilah Get Sexy

7/1/12

In the Bible, Delilah is a two-dimensional character easily motivated to betray Samson for money.  But what if the real story wasn’t that simple?  What if she loved Samson in return?  My short story for July, THE JAWBONE OF AN ASS, takes that tack.  Written in the 1990s and not previously published, it’s from my short-story collection Suicide Notes.  You can read it for free at www.arlissryan.com/short-stories/
