How do you make conversation with a sperm donor? How do you say
someone's novel is drivel? Would you give a screaming baby brandy? In
what words would you tell your girlfriend to pluck a hair on her chin?
Touchy Subjects is about things that make people wince: taboos,
controversies, secrets and lies. Some of the events that characters
crash into are grand, tragic ones: miscarriage, overdose, missing
persons, a mother who deserts her children. Other topics, like religion
and money, are not inherently taboo, but they can cause acute
discomfort because people disagree so vehemently. Many of these stories
are about the spectrum of constrained, convoluted feeling that runs
from awkwardness through embarrassment to shame.
