Jamie Quatro performs her own thought-provoking story about adultery with the same candor and fearlessness that her protagonists try to attain for themselves. Burnished with the eccentricity and sensuousness that characterizes most of Quatro's stories, "Wavefunction Collapse" creates vivid, unforgettable metaphors about love and lust and how they change their shape and form upon being revealed and observed. Quatro uses a dialed-down approach to throw her adulterous characters into high relief, never giving them any false sympathy but at the same time, allowing them a poignant frailty.
Jamie Quatro's stories are uncensored, sometimes eccentric explorations of life - its darkness and brilliance - written in a voice that David Means describes as "bright, sharp, startling, utterly distinctive, passionate, and secretive". Quatro writes from Lookout Mountain, Georgia, where she lives with her husband, Scott, and their children. "Wave Function Collapse" is a stand-alone story first published in the Spring 2013 issue of The Oxford American, narrated by the author, and is a great introduction to her writing.
