really liked it
bookshelves: lgbtq, to-re-read

I really enjoyed this quick read which darts back and forth, giving snapshots (each "chapter" is usually just 1 or 2 pages) throughout an intense on-and-off dysfunctional relationship between two women, one of whom (the narrator) has had no romantic experience with women before. It's very introspective and every-day, there's no huge drama in terms of plot; it's all in the very well observed and specific details of her relationship and the impact on her life. These give the book its intimacy and intensity and make it so compelling. I didn't need the (slightly heavy-handed if beautiful) imagery thrown in to the last few pages, but otherwise I loved the very unpretentious plain writing style throughout.
