After reading "geek love", I spent several years searching for dunn's earlier, out-of-print novels. until today: stumbled upon 'truck" in a used store! been reading all afternoon: daring fiction, fascinating characters (of course), and i am left wondering why ms dunn is not more widely recognized...her writing is even more experimental and adventurous here than in geek love (far as language and structure are concerned)...few writers can pull off a forty page paragraph, compelling all the way through.

    Attic Very necessary for any Geek Lover. It's like an autobiography, with the most awesome strange plot lines twisted right in. Highly sexual, disturbing, intense. And it's all stream of consciousness, and it is so good. I personally like it a whole lot more than I like Truck, and it clearly belongs to a different genre than Geek. It's intense. In honor of my great aunt Eva, I give it three enthusiastic thumbs up.
