"[Lisa Teasley] lights up the plunge into the abyss that can result
from knowing people far too well."--Greg Tate, "Village Voice"
Lost souls, the disenfranchised, the destitute: these are the
denizens of Lisa Teasley's stories. There's Magda, the
drug-addicted surfer chick, Gita, who juggles sexual relationships,
and Boogie, an overweight ten-year-old. Teasley follows her
characters deep into the mire. "Baker" emerged from the 1997 rape
and murder of a seven-year-old in a Nevada casino. In "Holiday
Confessional," a character flees after witnessing a crime to then
share the secret with two strangers in a bar. Set in New York, Los
Angeles, Paris, and Baja, Lisa Teasley's stories illuminate
society's darker side.
