The Moo: Stories and a Novella Available for Sale Here!
April 2012 Soft Release
The Moo is a mosaic of short stories and a novella exploring endeavors for love, forgiveness, acceptance, and freedom. Meet the tormented artist and her purple obsession, the secretive sculptor who kills Truth, the lonely housewife who steals her husband’s underwear, the internet peeper battling a medical condition he can’t pronounce, the unemployed high school teacher whose Korean vacation ends in bloodshed, and the sex-crazed, Panamanian dreamer whose quest for independence catapults her into a domestic war zone.
In her exuberant debut collection of linked stories, Adriena Dame introduces us to a host of intersecting characters, each grappling with sexual hunger, love-stricken grief, and family histrionics. This is a perceptive and often hilarious examination of the way we control, relinquish, or make peace with the people we yearn for and the dreams we aspire to.
