Synopsis:

Eccentric and living happily alone, Helen is an oddity and a mystery in her town. When she goes on her annual trip to the city, her house is left empty—the perfect target for a thief who knows her habits. While Helen enjoys the luxuries of the city, the thief roams her home, discovering innocent objects with immense history and meaning, if not necessarily monetary worth.

Forms of Devotion contains eleven stories, each one a brilliant interplay of words and images. Forms of Devotion is a playful, sometimes surreal, and often mysterious juxtaposition of a historical fascination with anatomy and classical themes with the author's contemporary exploration of everyday people, places, and things.
