by Michael Quinn WORKING TOGETHER follows Mary, an aspiring poet, and Harold, an IT pro, who reunite in the guest room of a Philadelphia party. They haven’t seen each other in years, but they know where they’re headed. After a night of confession, teasing and tension, we see their story two years later and what that night spawned: an unconsummated romance and an affection they dread but can’t have.
