In the world of Dominant Traits, personality is pathology. These are unflinching human portraits with a wide range of characters, from Goths to human dummies. But that is not to suggest that these stories are grim, not at all. Poachers is a compassionate rendering of confused parentage. Seven Little Stories about Sex is laugh out loud funny at times, but ends tenderly, heartbreakingly so, with an affirmation of spousal love. Despite the tough circumstances characters find themselves in, they keep on keeping on in these stories. They make you understand what it is to be a human being. They make you love life in all its sloppy glory.
These stories are written with glittery precision. Never flashy or gimmicky, just perfect, apt in their choices for structure and diction. And I learned some cool new words too -- hoodoo, fartlek.
This is a brilliant debut.
