Geezer Dyke and Other Stories of Bad Behavior
An April 2024 release!
by Becky Thacker
Thacker skillfully intertwines wit and sensitivity in her collection of quirky stories that traverse the realms of nostalgia and an ever-changing world. In a futuristic tale, an elderly protagonist embarks on a profound journey with their mute partner, contemplating their nomadic existence and the abandoned landscapes now transformed into national parks. An aging woman in Mexico grapples with poignant memories of lost love and past relationships, particularly her poignant experience with a loved one who fought against cancer. An inebriated man finds his specially modified hunting cart pilfered by two adventurous women, who take it on a thrilling joyride across a golf course, leading to encounters and revelations that defy expectations. A woman wakes up to a bewildering reality, trapped in the body of a teenage girl, while the teenager inhabits the woman's body. Both characters are left horrified and perplexed by this surreal situation, and they must navigate their newfound identities while seeking to adapt to this extraordinary predicament. Thacker's stories artfully capture the essence of human experiences through heartfelt emotions.
