THREE WRECKED MEN, the latest plunge into the psyche of the lone American male by author Lysa Williams, brings us three struggling knights in the war against dysfunction. A narcoleptic painter - the erotic Vermeer, who falls asleep on 'contact', a high school student who rides the NYC subway each night in search of that perfect moment of beauty, and a male prostitute who spends his off hours creating miniature models of the seven wonders of the world. Williams guides us in and out of these shadowy landscapes with gripping reality, shining a searchlight into hidden corners. Like her previous book SOUNDLESS the characters in THREE WRECKED MEN are living, breathing people. Their singular unfortunes made bearable by the beauty and humor of her prose. These men, who at first seem so far from the norm, are in the end simply human. They could be our bosses, our postmen or maybe even the boy next door.
