I'll be writing two stories at the same time, but think of this as no "New Narrative" trick but as a kind of Victorian novel in miniature. Three stories really, because I've stretched out Brad Gooch's "Satan," as one might stretch a canvas before hitting the palette. In "Satan," a photographer, Eddie, so badly abuses his black model that even his rich white patrons, who like abuse to a certain point, start to drop him. This causes him to see the light and to change his ways. Reading the story you can't help but think you're getting a close-up of the home life of our dear Robert Mapplethorpe.
