David Cale creates an intoxicating mix of spicy stories, amorous encounters, and original sea shanties. James is a writer, and has sequestered himself in an oceanfront motel to finish his collection of tales of seaside romance—only to get drawn into the romantic goings-on around him. The cast of characters ranges from the Australian surfer who works the check-in desk to a dentist who mistakes the writer for his online date. All accompanied by the sea shanties from an English folk singer rehearsing in the room next door, The History of Kisses is a lyrical meditation on the nature of desire and fate.
