Product description

Review

The stories, phenomenally powerful and beautifully written, demonstrate the threats so many women in reality face, but also how, whatever their situation, they have agency, resilience and identities away from stereotypes created and reinforced by men.

Roxane is a powerhouse of a writer.

Powerful . . . Gay's fantastic collection is challenging, quirky, and memorable.

Different to anything I've read before . . . Be warned, it can get a little dark at times, but the collection is worth it

A powerful, two-fisted collection with heart under its surface.

A writer of prodigious, arresting talent

Gay tells intimate, deep, wry tales of jaggedly dimensional women. . . . Be they writer, scientist, or stripper, Gay's women suffer grave abuses, mourn unfathomable losses, love hard, and work harder

Gay expands her writing prowess with this collection featuring colorful women protagonists . . . Refreshing yet intricate . . . This work will appeal to lovers of literary and feminist fiction

Unified in theme ? the struggles of women claiming independence for themselves ? but wide-ranging in conception and form . . . Gay is an admirable risk-taker in her exploration of women's lives and new ways to tell their stories

Astonishing, arresting, and staggering

Book Description
