The stories that I loved from this book I really loved. They are rich with imagery and addressed larger questions of love, motherhood, and feminism. I savoured them and was rewarded with lush almost tangible characters and settings. With that said, some of the stories did not appeal to me at all and barley skimmed them. Some of her writing is sexually explicit so keep that in mind if it's not your cup of tea.

This trashy work of short stories is nothing but pornography.

Remarkable writing applied to stories which did not have much appeal for me. Too many first-person narrators relating stories of self-defeat and self-loathing. Most of these tales have a heavy undercurrent of rather obsessive sexuality. I'm not prude but I would have preferred variety.

Inventive and imaginative. Each story as creative and interesting as the next.
