Abstract (Summary)

Darkness and Luck is a collection of loosely interrelated short stories that focus on the members of a group of young adults living in Southern California. The stories and characters explore the themes and subjects of friendship, love, sexuality, gender, and trauma. The stories told in this collection are fictional, but they are experiences that reflect the lives and the truth of many real individuals. Darkness and Luck was written with that hope that these stories would resonate with individuals who feel underrepresented in the media—particularly with individuals who are queer and LatinX.
