These stories are diary shreds of young women who are in school but things happen anyway. Girls with their hears open like agar petri dishes. The setting could be Toronto, Montreal, New Orleans, a Gothic castle or a bathtub. What people say matters. The girl might finally find someone she can talk to but falls asleep too soon. She will fall down taking the scenery with her. Stars are brought down into sugar containers and stirred into coffee. A couch is thrown outon the grass and you're invited to have a seat.

Golda Fried grew up in Toronto and then went to university in Montreal where she wrote poetry and was involved in spoken-word events like the Lollapalooza festival in 1994. Her collection of stories, Darkness, Then a Blown Kiss, was published in 1998 and was listed as one of the ten best books of the year by NOW Magazine. She has been teaching freshman composition for the last three years in Greensboro, North Carolina.
