    "Sherry Wood hits her stride..." "Everyone is Chuckers" hit me like a safe dropped out of an upper floor of the Sears tower, and came across as something like the surrealist nightmares of William Burroughs intersecting with the 90s Neoism of Stewart Home. "The Devil's Bathwater" delivered Wood's take on the coming-of-age genre best exemplified by S.E. Hinton, updating it and showing the same sense of tenderness and poetry that Hinton showed toward her generation of lost children and teenage outcasts. In "Suzanne Degnan," Wood shatters expectations again and invites the reader to let her tell them a ghost story. The setting is similar to "Chuckers;" 90s Chicago, Boy's Town, and its underworld of musicians, punks, squatters, hustlers, and suburban thrill-seekers. But, the masochism and shock-value that was out front and all over "Chuckers," like the fresh, self-inflicted wounds on a gutter-punk's chest, is notably absent.... More > Instead, we get engrossing readability and a nod to the power of a well-crafted supernatural story with redemption and mainstream appeal. She executes it deftly, like a grunge version of Stephen King.< Less
