Glow in the Dark
This startlingly edgy, seductive debut collection of short stores, travels from New York to Northern California, Mexico, Los Angeles and Paris, dropping us dead centre into the lives of those whose extreme behaviour has led them to the threshold of significant transition. Among the many intriguing, unique individuals, there is Marty wrestling with sobriety and his unspeakable obsession; Gita trying to conduct the love triangle she orchestrated; the frustrated lover, Tim, attempting to wedge himself between his girlfriend and her brother; and the surf chick, Magda, tightrope-walking in her circus of drugs, opportunistic men and the waves of Baja California. Finely crafted and painstakingly written, each of these twelve stories is a stunningly powerful, dynamic look into lives at the breaking point.
