From the globally bestselling author of P.S., I Love You comes a fiercely feminist story collection that blends fables with magical realism to reflect on how women of all kinds navigate the world today.

In this singular and imaginative collection of fables surrounding the female experience, Ahern mines both the quotidian and the profound in situations that women everywhere will relate to. Her stories are a unique mix of magic realism, familiar domestic and professional scenarios, and futuristic worlds, all of which demonstrate not only the hurdles women face, but also women's ability to move past them. The women in these thought-provoking short fables are plagued by problems both mysterious and mundane: One woman is tortured by sinister bite marks on her skin; another slowly disappears; yet another forgets her own name. As they struggle against obstacles of all kinds, their reality is shaped both by how others perceive them and by how they perceive themselves.

The stories--and the women in them--are nuanced, honest, and empowering, and they will reflect and resonate with all women as we reexamine what it means to be a woman in the world today.
