Carol Treadwell, Spots and Trouble Spots

 

When they finally slept together, Jean discovered that intimacy between them would not do any good, that when they touched they made dents in each other, made each other cold.

She’d meant to slam him into walls or be slammed. She’d meant to conquer her shyness. But they were in bed and blanketed, one of the more active things she did was sit up.

 

Carol Treadwell was born in Oakland, California. In addition to Spots and Troublespots (2004), she is also the author of The Museum of Contemporary Art (2004). She also has work published in Traffic, Snowflake, The Los Angeles Times, and Unnatural Disasters: Recent Writing from the Golden State. Treadwell has taught at CalArts, Santa Monica College, and Los Angeles City College.
