Message to the Nurse of Dreams: A Collection of Short Fiction
A white high school girl tinkers with the invisible pieces of her life while the black disc jockey says, "This one is dedicated to all you blue-eyed soul sisters out there, hiding what the good Lord gave you. Move into it, babies."
Message to the Nurse of Deams is about growing up in the late 60s in a Texas oil town soaked by Gulf winds, where every kid was one generation removed from the country - a time when black and white got mixed together, half-grown, half children, trying to decide if they were as different as they'd been led to believe all their lives.
