“Genitals have their own lives, his beloved Nina had said at the close of an argument over whether even the most besotted husband could be trusted one hundred percent faced with the permanent sexual temptations the world provided,” begins Norman Rush’s long-awaited third novel, Subtle Bodies. The story concerns Ned, who’s run off to the Catskills for a reunion of old college friends, and his wife, Nina, who’s trying to catch him before her 36-hour window to get pregnant expires. Tonight, Rush, who won the National Book Award for Mating in 1991, discusses the book with Marco Roth, co-founder of n+1.
