Taboo, uncensored, illicit, unusual, breaking expectations in unorthodox ways ... transgressive fiction is the place in literature for all of those things and Trainwreck Tendencies is where we can chat about them.
Palm trees and scorching hot air with sunlight so bright it's blinding. The sunshine state is the home of nine problematic people who are all just trying to get through the day with the resources available to them.
Rachel, someone at the start of a downward spiral.
Amber, a woman whose appearance and identity have a price tag. Nash, a cokehead with nowhere to be and nowhere to go. Colson, a drug dealer with an innocent motive. Jeanne, a washed-up ballet dancer living in a retirement community. Angelina, a hooker with a backup plan. Erin, a widow looking for a new start in a new state. Grace, a young single mother of two. Moira, a martyr in her own mind.
