On "Krazy Glue" by Hallie Elizabeth Newton (3494 words) ****

This story transfixed me with its voice. A woman sort of falls in love with a set of mixed tapes, a correspondence made up of someone else's love tunes. A woman goes to Mexico to change her life. A woman tries to glue herself back together. Much of this piece isn't in chronological order. We get bits about the time in Mexico, bits about past boyfriends, bits about her life, but by the time we get to the end, we know where all the pieces are, and we're ready to begin Krazy gluing ourselves. Read the story here at Dogzplot.
