Item description for Lick of the Lizard (New Writing from the West) by Geraldine Mills...
The journey of Geraldine Mills into the world of short story has earned her many plaudits, and it is clear from this collection why. This is no surprise for readers more familiar with Miller's work as a poet. She brings lyricism to her prose. Her heroes fight constant battles with jealousy, marital disappointment, infidelity, and death. Although the themes are dark, they are not without humor. Some battles are won, others are lost, all are wholly engrossing. Taking the title from her Hennessy Award-winning story "Lick of the Lizard," this collection of nine highly wrought stories sings.
