Lynette D'Anna, Author, Lynnette D'Anna, Author Insomniac Press $15.95 (188p) ISBN 978-1-895837-00-1
Lynnette D'anna (fool's bells, etc.) continues to peer into dark corners of the human psyche in vixen, but her themes have lost most of their power to shock. The title character is plagued by memories of her abusive mother and obsessed with her sadomasochistic lover, Ruby. But she is also competing with Ruby's brother, Adam, for her affections. After the incestuous couple commits what appears to be a murder-suicide, the kinkfest shifts gears and becomes a mystery, but the impressionistic narrative is so disjointed that it's hard to tell the difference. The audience for this is going to be very small indeed.
