Dwight Allen's "The eco-friendly swimsuit" conjures up the younger guy edging towards maturity, in a brand new York that is as flamboyant as an opera, and Tenaya Darlington, in her "A Patch of Skin," constructs a natural horror tale, as the horror of loneliness is anything we know. jointly Barnstorm's eclectic voices recommend that each coast now, even the nice Lakes' beaches, are on the very heart of our greatest, and truest, nationwide literature.
