Description
"Female Trouble" features thirteen wise, funny, and startlingly perceptive stories about the vagaries and revelations of womanhood. Named by "The New Yorker" as one of the twenty best writers of her generation, Antonya Nelson explores the broad notion of family from myriad angles in "Female Trouble." Set in the vividly rendered Midwest, these moving stories are dark and honest portraits of people in moral quandaries, gray areas, unclear circumstances -- from the three-timing thirty-year-old man of the title story to the divorced mother of a turbulent teen in "Incognito" to the sexually adventurous daughter of an adulterous mother in "Stitches." With "Female Trouble, " Nelson has created a cast of memorable characters who reveal us to ourselves with disturbing clarity and conscience.
