Any lover of realistic narrative fiction about actual and unglamorous people will be greatly rewarded by the work of Antonya Nelson.
These are precise and acutely knowing stories, written by a woman who
understands the potential of both female trouble and the short story form.
The New York Times Book Review
These are serious stories, sensual and dark, with much at risk for the reader and, one imagines, the writer...Female Trouble is the work of a strong writer who sees both panoramically and with a powerfully close focus.
Precise, perceptive, and exceedingly funny.
