"These are stories in which women are central," according to the inside cover. Oh yes they are. And that's fine, fine, fine. Men are not only peripheral. They are by turns toxic, tepid and/or total douchebags, while the women are, well, not those things. I overstate. A little. One line, from the final story, is revealing. "For what was living with a man if it wasn't living inside his insanity?" Can it really be that? Let's hope so.

And yet, these are stories that are superbly written.
