Overview

Blue is the second volume of short stories by multi-genre author, Wodke Hawkinson. Blue contains three novelettes, which in and of themselves make the book a must-read. In addition, Blue features 15 shorter works that run the gamut from bawdy humor in "The Erotic Adventures of Dick Speed" to the contemplative surrealism of "Death Hates His Job". Using a variety of subjects, each peopled with unique and memorable characters, Blue escorts the reader through different and compelling stories. In "Back to the Past" a young man recalls meeting his bride years earlier when they were children. "The Deconstruction of Dennis" is a tragedy that illustrates the lonely sorrow of mental illness in a non-supportive family. The title piece, "Blue", tells the harrowing tale of a little girl who is thrust into the custody of her father's unsavory family upon the death of her mother.
