Mylène Dressler's third novel (after THE MEDUSA TREE and THE DEADWOOD BEETLE) is a departure book. Unlike her first two, THE FLOODMAKERS is less concerned with the lyricism of introspection than with the dynamics of character and dialogue, and how they reveal the innermost workings of a family. Narrator Harry Buelle, a gay playwright who seems destined to live in the shadow of his famous playwright father, arrives at the family's Texas beach house at the request of his stepmother, Jean.

Failure" may be too harsh of a word to describe Mylene Dressler’s The Floodmakers, but literary achievement in the area of the family drama certainly doesn’t fit the bill, either. Spanning a weekend, the story revolves around Harry Buelle, the narrator, and his family consisting of father, step-mother, sister, and brother-in-law. Whether he’s mildly retarded or autistic is never known because all the author reveals is that the rest of the family reacts to him with some distance, treating him as if he were a puppy or an over-excited child they have no choice but to deal with. Why does the family resent his marriage to Sarah?
