To be honest, I’m not sure what I read. I kept at it because the writing was such fun. The story, if there is one, is stream of conscious writing, with beauty in the words. It takes place in a large city in Arizona, though I kept trying to put it in Las Vegas. The protagonist works in a windowless office, beneath the city, and fancies himself in love, or maybe lust, with a woman who wears dead scorpions in her hair.
It was an interesting story to read before turning the light out. I stretched it over 3 nights, and no nightmares; it is not a horror story, just weird and strange. This is the first story I’ve read by Mr. Dunn. I will try at least one other. As mentioned above, I’m not sure what I read, but the writing was enjoyable, hence the 4 stars instead of 3. Actually, if the writing hadn’t been as good as it is, I wouldn’t have finished it.
Perhaps because it is a stand-alone short story, and not a full novel, there is no way to leave a review at either Amazon.com or Goodreads.com. I found that rather interesting, especially on the Amazon site.
