it was amazing
bookshelves: fiction

These are bleakly fantastic portrayals of an unhappy human condition, made exquisite by their vividness, and their personal telling nature. We might think Tiptree is a misogynist until learning that he is a she (AKA Alice Sheldon). Who better to berate the abuse experienced by the "weaker sex" than a woman? the guise of a man. This fiction is has a truth to it like that of watching your house burn down.
