Collection of short stories. Many but not all are set in the same small Pennsylvania town and all treat some aspect of dysfunctional families. The writing style blew me away; it was quite stunning. I could visualize each very easily. Plots were minimal.

One of those books that's more about the way it's told than anything else. It could be depressing, but Braverman's words transform it into something that is also illuminating.

There is much to say about Kate Braverman. She’s 57 years old and a SF writer who is a self-proclaimed outlaw. She is currently working on a book of poetry in San Francisco. She’s a relevant literary experimentalist who is hell-bent on women having total access to the page, according to an article by San Francisco’s Unscripted. She’s non-canonical a la Kathy Acker. She’s post-modern, post-punk and a product of the 60’s beat poets. She loves Leonard Cohen and William Burroughs. But let’s get down to the nitty gritty. There’s a jarring way Braverman inhabits the female body and this is important to feminist writing today.
