Another good book from our library. A novel with dark intensity and wicked wit. Mary Gaitskill writes in a stunning synthesis of both the perpetrator’s role and that of the victim. The story superficially is the study two women who are contrasting characters and yet share equally haunting sexual burdens carried since youth. The unforgiving tone and brutality to some extent makes it a real intense book, but a good one too.
Yes, if you know where we live, you’re welcome to come and read this. We are a little touchy just like any other book owners about letting you borrow. Just in case you don’t find us, you’ll find the book on Amazon or Flipkart.
