The Hostler is a collection of fictions featuring extravagant and histrionic female narrators cast in iconic roles such as "the woman," "the nurse," "the lover," and "the daughter," among others. By featuring narrators who are prone to melodrama and deploying a writing style that favors artificiality over mimesis, The Hostler strives to explore highly stylized, absurdly comic, and artificial narrative voices as catalysts for the reader's empathy.
