Fiction. Gay/Lesbian Studies. Written in the lyrical language of dreams, UNDERTOW is the love story of two women brought together by accident, their histories revealed in alternating streams of consciousness that resemble impressionistic swirls of paint. A lyrical first novel -- Utne Reader. UNDERTOW mixes memory and desire and reminds us how dangerous and jagged, and how necessary, love is -- Elizabeth Brownrigg.From Booklist:
Freud contended there were no such things as accidents. Shakespeare often referred to star-crossed lovers, and it would seem that lovers meant for each other are truly fated when Dotty, a housepainter, ends up in the hospital after falling from her ladder and meets a nurse named Macy, who used to live in the very house Dolly was painting. Sure enough, after less than a brief spell in the hospital, Dotty allows Macy to move in and look after her for a couple of weeks, and not surprisingly, Macy winds up staying for good. It's all misty and atmospheric, like Dotty's morphine-inspired dreams, which lead to her growing addiction to Vicodin, a painkiller Macy manages to get without benefit of a doctor's prescription. Told alternately by Dotty and Macy in gauzy, fragmented half-thoughts, the conflicts of love and loving, of self-doubt and self-revelation become clearly etched for both as a surprise visit from Dotty's brother and sister causes a major shift in the lovers' lives. Schutzer's debut novel should establish her as a writer to watch. Whitney Scott
