Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

This collection of nine stories "marks the debut of a promising and provocative new voice," PW remarked. These are tales of sexual obsession, drug addiction, the darkest sides of interpersonal relationships. "Writing about human nature at its most perverse and hopeless, Gaitskill has created an intimate and almost beautiful series of images." Author tour.

Review

''Pinteresque...Ms. Gaitskill writes with such authority, such radar-perfect detail, that she is able to make even the most extreme situations seem real...[her] reportorial candor, uncompromised by sentimentality or voyeuristic charm...underscores the strength of her debut.'' -- Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times

''Ferocious, terrifying stories, skillful as they are scary. Gaitskill's voice and talents are wonderfully new, as honest as rain, and as welcome in a long, dry season.'' --Alice Adams

''A thrilling journey into the deep anxieties of romance and desire...Stunning.'' --Frederick Exley

''Stubbornly original, with a sort of rhythm and fine moments that flatten you out when you don't expect it, these stories are a pleasure to read.'' --Alice Munro
