I think the book definitely falls under the broad umbrella of "women's fiction" as a work written by a woman about the lives of girls and women, so I'm comfortable with that categorization. But I am generally curious how much utility that umbrella has. Jennifer Weiner seems to sum it up well in a recent essay: "'Women’s fiction' has been a catchall term for years, an ever-expanding tent big enough to cover anything written for women or by a woman, or consumed primarily by women." What an enormous, diverse pool of work. I hope that potential readers of DISAPPEARING EARTH will get to hear its description, like you did, and feel out whether this particular one is right for them.

“Everyone looked better at a distance. Everyone sounded sweetest when you did not have to hear them talk too long.”
Julia Phillips, Disappearing Earth

“hurts too much to break your own heart out of stupidity, to leave a door unlocked or a child untended and return to discover that whatever you value most has disappeared. No. You want to be intentional about the destruction. Be a witness. You want to watch how your life will shatter.”
Julia Phillips, Disappearing Earth

“In the front seats, Eva and Petya argued over the ending of an Australian horror movie. Eva was winning, speaking with more conviction; Petya kept falling silent as he navigated around potholes in the road. The next time he downshifted, Eva turned in her seat to make her case to Marina. “The end of it is a fantasy, like a dream sequence, don’t you agree?” “I didn’t see the movie,” Marina said. Eva pursed her lips. “From what you heard us describe, though. Doesn’t it seem most likely that it’s a fantasy?” Marina shook her head. “I don’t know.” That familiar pressure began to come down on her chest. Petya, bringing the car back up to speed, glanced at his wife. “She hasn’t seen it. Leave her alone.”
