A stunning collection of hard-hitting, discomfiting stories about women. In all their forms.

Many of the stories here pack a severe emotional punch, or challenge you to think, or disgust you. But what is evident throughout is that Gay is an amazing writer. For someone like me who generally prefers characters, plot, atmosphere and most things over the words themselves, it was astounding to be so floored by the author's command of language. She wields sentences as weapons and uses them to break your heart.

Or screw with your mind.

Or both.
