These seven stories pinpoint the dissonance between sexuality and religion in the lives of some contemporary Mormons. In "Petroglyphs'' a lumpish doctoral candidate in history at the University of Utah, buffaloed by a rapaciously passionate female mentor, experiences tortuous self-doubt until he is rescued by his practical, unscholarly wife. This long story achieves a send-up of the academic community and the research process. Vacillation over the question whether it was ethical to make love with a spouse one had decided to abandon'' bedevils bulky, bald Wallace during a mid-life crisis in "Wayne County Romance.'' In the title piece, an excavator of privy-pits worries about reunion with his amputated leg on the day of the Resurrection. Peterson portrays his characters as 'eccentrics' who are squarely mundane- sheep in lone wolf's clothing.
