really liked it
bookshelves: stories, 2016

Damn. Let me expand on my formula: Kelly Link (dead girls) x Mary Gaitskill (bondage) x A.M. Homes (sex) = this book. Also, hey, LEV GROSSMAN, TAKE NOTE - the last story is how you write fox sex, not that nonsense in The Magicians (which I hated). Because fox sex is weird but Maryse Meijer treats it with a weird respect - there's a tenderness in these stories that is so much more shocking than any of their premises. I will be bitchy and say the stories that had been published - "Fugue" especially - stood out dramatically from some of the others.

Can't wait to see what is next for Meijer.
