Ls the severed arm of her ex to reclaim the fragments of a dissolved marriage Following the advice of a fashion magazine teenaged girls binge on grapes to dye their skin purple and attract prom dates And a college freshman wages war on her roommate from Jupiter who has inadvertently seduced all the boys in their dorm with her exotic hermaphroditic ana. NETGALLEY GIVE AWAYFirst what a freaking amazing coverI can't decide if I would associate these gems with Salvador Dalí or Degas They demonstrate a writer skilled in the style of surrealism but they capture the human sorrows in shades of obscure moments that take time to comprehend but eventually raise the most human of emotions; sadnessEach have elements of the ghastly the dark and the whimsical The stories are dreamlike in a distant elusive way You can clearly identify with the larger themes of lost and sorrow but it takes a careful mind and patience to notice the depth of each; the shrouded complexities that lay hidden In fact the little delicate whispers hidden under a ridged exterior hit you harder than the overall subject matter Pay close attention subject matter is sweeping but anchored in a common over arching themeA story about divorce that was crowded with the vulgarity of defense mechanisms that one only reserves for the most life shattering crises is shattered and pierced to reveal the remanence of love Another about the disappointments that lie beneath eager attempt to conform and the outcome you surely perceived would happen but pushed from your mind Six Sisters;
