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.
When the phrase "one person is lonely, two is company, and three is a crowd" rings all too well. The difference between those you feel comfortable enough to borrow from but not comfortable enough to lend to. When the method for problem-solving can be bought on any corner. A cokehead speeding through a mid-life crisis. Hookers that want to be your friend, or pretend to be, for the sake of passing the time. Another hooker who lives life by a philosophy centered around the little hand of a clock. An old bitch who marvels in her past glamour of being a ballerina and recites those stories to the husband and children she never had. And how dying feels like sitting at the bottom of a swimming pool with your eyes squeezed shut.
I did it all and observed it all for my amusement.
"It's my world ... you just live in it."
