This was an Indiespensables selection and only the second one I’ve finished. It is a selection of short stories, all focusing on women. Many LGBTQ+ themes throughout with sci fi and mystic realism tossed in in for good measure.
I loved some stories (The Husband Stitch — a retelling of a children’s horror story with other horror stories thrown in), liked some and hated one (Especially Heinous — a 60-page collection of Law & Order: SVU episodes that pertained to Heinous crimes against women).
When I got to Especially Heinous I nearly quit reading the book, but since Clare wanted the book and I promised I would give it to her, I pushed on and finished by the time we visited her in Olympia.
