Description
An electrifying debut collection of short fiction, Dirt Angel is informed by an original voice from the urban landscape of crossover culture. In these stories, a self-made young woman from the projects attempts to rescue a once affluent former cheerleader-turned-junkie ("Dirt Angel"); a sensual, reckless psychological adventurer provokes her street lover into raping and eventually killing her ("Tryst"); a dropout debutante, bereaved by the death of her mother, identifies with a Vietnam War hero about to be executed for murder ("Survivors").
