Description:
  House of Flesh deals forcefully with issues of class and sexual taboos. The story involves a blind holy book reciter (reader) who marries a widow with three daughters. Knowing her daughters are too poor to marry, the widow allows all three of them to sleep with her blind but young and healthy husband. Each night one of the daughters wears the widow’s wedding ring in order to fool him. The holly book reciter suspects something is amiss, but doesn’t question his good fortune in the bedroom.
