it was amazing
bookshelves: 2010-read

In my head if Mary Gaitskill's writing and Philip Roth's writing were to meet, have sex, and create a baby, that baby would be Gina Frangello's writing. I choose Gaitskill because, like Frangello, she writes about women dealing with their sexuality and the power/control issues that go with it, and Roth because of the anal sex.

It's also no coincidence that I've chosen two of my all-time favorite writers as the imaginary parents of Frangello's writing, because after finishing her latest short story collection Slut Lullabies she's reserved herself a spot on the list. That's only because the official rules and bylaws of favorite author lists clearly states that you must read at least three books by an author before they can be granted favorite writer status.
