About this product
- DescriptionHere are Roy V. Spikes' studies of several variations of historically-recognized pathologies. Twisted Minds is composed of three stylistically original and technically egregious short stories, there are three protagonists which have become stock characters in American literature who are mired in situational kerfuffles. Further, these situations are a much-loved commonplace, classic pieces of Americana. The stories are Witches Brew, about a sixteenth-century witch who seduces men into her home and then turns them into pigs; Prison Break, a story of a young boy in the late 1930's who gets sent to juvenile detention for robbery; and The Dark of Night, about Jessie, one of those cool, wild biker boys who gets into an accident after which he does t kw whether he is alive or dead. The triptych of stories are unrelated but are twined together to dramatize young adult pathologies. The characterizations and plots are utterly realized with an incisive but n-intrusive modernism. Spikes' voice has the quality of speaking directly into the modern debate without being out of place, without being too common, slyly hooking in the reader into a state of suspended disbelief which the reader will find familiar, lived-in and sensible. This is a groundbreaking work and Roy V. Spikes is a name to watch in American literature's futurescape.
