Machado defies categorization. This is a collection of her stories that have previously appeared in other publications. In reading these, I felt I was entering a room where "the furniture is attached to the ceiling" (pg. 215), recognizable bits of being a woman in a world that often times doesn't recognize us.
[Of note: I am a huge Law & Order: SVU
fan, so the chapter Especially Heinous
was a delight (the mental image of Stabler jogging to crime scenes had me ROFL!)]
This will be going out to the winner of my One book a month offer for June!

What a weird book! I liked it, but maybe it was a mistake to read it in one go. I felt that the darkness and the sex scenes in most stories started to feel repetitive after a while. I'd like to see a more cohesive and less abrupt ending in some of the stories too.
Otherwise, I enjoyed the quirkiness and oddity.
Thanks once again for sharing echode!
