Roxane Gay, author of the best-selling Bad Feminist has returned with a collection of stories of rare force and beauty, of hardscrabble lives, passionate loves, and quirky and vexed human connection. These stories feature women from many different backgrounds; lives of privilege, poverty, and everywhere in between, young and old, married, in a relationship, or single, these women are all haunted by something or someone. Many have suffered severe and traumatic experiences and all of the stories are told with a raw and brutal honesty. These are not your "typical" love stories but there is still love in its many different forms.
