Short Fiction. Winner of the 1995 Dead Metaphor Press Chapbook Contest, "First Love And Others" is a collection of five short stories which defy the orders of words like "love" and "relationships, " "two words which have automatic beginnings, middles and ends. Davis winnows away such prefab structures or ignores them as she zeroes in on the details of each exchange" (Keith Abbot. In the title story, Davis writes "I could remember the look of a thin blade of late afternoon sunlight that would fall into the farthest corner of his living room last year, something Philip had probably never noticed, surely had no memory of." These stories have memory of such images, such blades of light. They notice, and record what is noticed, in prose that makes you want to keep reading and to keep reading Tracy Davis.
