Susie | 4488 comments I really enjoyed this collection of short stories (Who even am I? I hate stort stories!) by Carmen Maria Machado. They floated my femnist boat. ;-) Each story in some way highlights the mistreatment of women in our society, from a husband who won't take no for an answer, to our relationship with food and body image, to experiences of sexual assualt, all told with an eerie, gothic feel. The stories were at times bizarre and absurd, and I didn't love them all, but as a collection it was four stars for me.

Tracy (tstan) | 1182 comments This was a really good collection of short stories. There were a few I didn’t like much, either, but most of them left me feeling like a complete story was delivered.

Meli (melihooker) | 3125 comments I borrowed this from the library but only got through a couple stories before I had to return it before a vacation.

I loved the couple I read, so I have it on my list to revisit sometime.
