I Am a Magical Teenage Princess is a thematically linked collection of short stories celebrating and re-examining 1960s and contemporary culture, magnifying such popular icons as Betty and Veronica and Wonder Woman through a literary lens of wit and pathos. In 'Surfer Girl', the title character drifts through time, tormented by the bizarre clichés of drive-in B-movies. 'Another Girl, Another Planet' depicts a reluctant teenage astronaut idling away her post-apocalyptic adolescence huffing gasoline and fooling around with her five brutish shipmates, all named Tommy. 'Habit Patterns' shows us the beleaguered subject of an educational hygiene film who longs to break free from the cruel social strictures of her celluloid world. In these and other stories, Luke Geddes experiments with poise and verve whilst retaining an unfakeable human touch often lacking in works more self-consciously centred on human interest.
