“You are so brave!” A reader recently commented about The Stain.
English professors tell students to write about what they know. That’s what I did. The Stain is dramatic fiction about things that happen to women embedded within a psychological mystery/international romance storyline.
Do you remember the 1987 movie “Fatal Attraction?” This is the one where a married man has a weekend fling, the woman becomes obsessed and stalks him. It was terrifying. I haven’t seen it in years, but I will never forget the scene where she breaks into his home and boils his kid’s pet rabbit in a big pot. Eek!
Fatal Attraction was the highest-grossing film of 1987 worldwide (per Wikipedia).
I wonder if people thought the man who wrote that story was “brave?"
