Ron Dakron

Newt is a frightening ride through the hopes and horrors of a troubled American immigrant. Set in Seattle's loft art scene, two young lovers, Alysha and Newt, discover that the past is prelude to oblivion. Switching elegantly between Alysha's horrific past and her frenzied present, Newt delves into doomed love and taboo lust.

A Caribbean woman loves a Seattle sculptor. Their romance should end with slurred daquiri kisses. But there's this little problem. Someone else wants her—the guy in the aqua Thunderbird. The color of his ride clues her who's driving. Her first lover. Someone related.

Professional Reviews

The Seattle Weekly, December 4, 1991
"Ron Dakron does wonders with sweat. In his new novel, Newt, the best moments occur when Dakronís restlessly sensual prose zeros in on a restlessly sensual moment; a steam bath, sex, the silent moments after sex . . . No action is described with a conventional verb. No event takes place within a conventional time frame. The results are challenging, aggravating, and hypnotically resonant."

The Stranger, October 14, 1994
"Ron Dakronís sentences are lines short, rhythmic, poetic . . . Dakronís storytelling technique gives the reader a perspective that shifts from the mundane concerns of Will she get away? and Will they marry and breed? The question is, Will Dakronís lines dazzle to the end or burn out the patience of classification-bound readers who must have either story or poetry? Newt is daringly and relentless opposed to plain language."
