Jaimee Wriston Colbert, professor of English, general literature and rhetoric, recently published her fifth book, Wild Things (Baker & Taylor, SPD). The book is a story collection filled with human characters facing disappointment and sheer desperation in an environment where good-paying factory jobs are an endangered species. Colbert’s protagonists confront meth, homeless and the abduction of a young girl by a man with the heart and soul of a “wild thing,” and the ghosts of lost dreams. Their survival is their triumph.
