According to his record in the fictional Thessalonian Apograph, Demas was the well-born son of Roman-Jewish parents who turned reluctantly to the teachings of Jesus as they were articulated by a young woman whom he later married, and by other followers of Christianity in the Roman province of Judea. Both attracted and repelled by the charismatic Paul, a "scolding runt...and the bearer of words about love," Demas struggles with his identity, and with his ambivalence about the Jesus story, eventually leaving Paul to follow his own mission. Richly embroidered scenes of violence, lust and eroticism capture the colorful early panorama of the Middle East as Whitten weaves his story about a provocative, tirelessly questioning voyager." -- Publisher's Weekly, Leisure Books, 1990-10, Hyperion.

Liebesfluchten Anziehungs- und Fluchtformen der Liebe in sieben Geschichten: als unterdrückte Sehnsüchte und unerwünschte Verwirrungen, als verzweifelte Seitensprünge und kühne Ausbrüche, als unumkehrbare Macht der Gewohnheit, als Schuld und Selbstverleugnung. Alle Protagonisten sind dabei in ihre Zeit verstrickt: Die deutsche Vergangenheit holt einen jungen Mann da ein, wo man es am wenigsten erwartet - in der Liebe zu einem Bild. Ein Ostberliner Ehepaar begeht Verrat aneinander - um die Ehe zu retten. Ein arrivierter Altschundsechziger laviert sich durch die Untiefen seiner liberalen Ehe und konventionellen Liebschaften, bis sein Schiff sinkt und er angespült wird, wo er nie landen wollte. Ein deutscher Student in New York greift zu ungewöhnlichen Mitteln, um seine Liebe zu einer amerikanischen Jüdin zu bewahren. Liebesfluchten sind zugleich auch Großstadtgeschichten und Geschichten über eine ratlose Generation, die immer wieder über die Fallstricke ihrer Vergangenheit stolpert.
