Synopsis

"If fiction were a giant transporter, I'd want to go to Trinie Dalton's world."—Los Angeles Times on Wide Eyed

Baby Geisha is a collection of thirteen sexually-charged stories that roam from the Coney Island Ferris wheel to the Greek Isles.

True to Trinie Dalton's form, the stories in Baby Geisha are distinctly imagined while also representing a more grounded approach in the author's style. There's the Joan Didion-obsessed starving journalist of "Pura Vida," struggling to maintain a relationship with her performance artist sisters (or anyone, for that matter), on assignment in Costa Rica to write an article on sloth-hugging. "Millennium Chill" is about a woman who discovers that her body heat is mysteriously linked to that of an elderly beggar.

The story "War Foods" begins with these memorable lines: "'Let's go downtown and get some government cheese,' my father used to say to my brother and I. He thought that was entertainment enough for the weekends he had us in his custody."

Baby Geisha serves to support Dalton's reputation as a remarkable stylist and a very original artist.

Trinie Dalton has authored and edited five books. Wide Eyed, Sweet Tomb, and A Unicorn Is Born are works of fiction. Dear New Girl or Whatever Your Name Is and Mythtym are art compilations. She writes articles and reviews about books, art, and music. She teaches book arts and writing at Pratt and New York University, and is on the MFA fiction faculty at Vermont College of Fine Arts.
