Summary (From the publisher):

These gutsy and postfeminist stories will elicit the shock of recognition from women and may reveal to men something about the further regions of the female psyche.

By turns graphic and funny, these urban tales present characters who are teetering on the edge. Indifferent or absent lovers, too much alcohol, too many cigarettes, obsession, paranoia, a desire that is always fresh in spite of the facts-this is the macabre landscape of these very unusual and unrestrained works.

In "Reading Sontag," Addonizio invades and recasts Susan Sontag's essay "The Pornographic Imagination" while describing a monumentally failed relationship. In "The Gift," a woman finds a dildo on the street and is magically transformed into a man.
