[Dolly] Wells's strength is in her characters.

Wells's bracingly spiky writing vividly draws both the characters and the connections between them.

While not designed to be an earth-shaking debut, "Good Posture" is more than enjoyable enough to suggest that Wells is no slouch.

There is an upright backbone somewhere in "Good Posture" that holds it all together, while a once-hopeless woman-child grows in Brooklyn against the odds.
