Book Review: Amy Dupcak’s DUST

51n-kphn0dlChristopher’s book review of DUST, a debut collection of short stories from author Amy Dupcak, appears in Issue Eighty-Eight (December 2016) of The Collagist.

The opening of this review of Amy Dupcak’s DUST:

James Hurst’s 1960 short story, “The Scarlet Ibis,” is commonly required reading for high school kids (and was adapted into an opera last year in New York City). It’s a remarkable story that opens with a garden…

From Lucid River Press: “A daring debut collection, Dust dives headfirst into the complicated waters of youth. Exploring themes of alienation, longing, self-destruction and ultimately self-awareness, the characters in Dust attempt to find meaning and form connections via sex, art, drugs, apple seeds, a cardboard dreamachine, and an aloe vera plant.”
