Aliens of Affection marks new territory for Padgett Powell, picking up where his first collection of stories, Typical, left off. Although his characters continue to revolt against the received instructions of modern American living - refusing to be dunked in what Saul Bellow has called the marinade of correctness - their concerns are less for independence than for the maintenance of sanity itself. Emotional estrangement seems both inevitable and worth fighting against to the middle-aged heroine of the O. Henry prizewinner Trick or Treat; to the unmistakably American roofer of Wayne (who was introduced in Typical ); to the deserted husband, father, and non-vet of Dump; and to the fantastic heroes in three stories grouped as All Along the Watchtower.
