About The Book
With Mae West as her ingenious guiding spirit, Erika Krouse introduces us to thirteen young, single, geographically and emotionally nomadic women looking for self-knowledge and trouble.
“I like to sleep with other women’s husbands,” says the narrator of “The Husbands” by way of introduction; unfortunately, one of those husbands is her own sister’s. In “Drugs and You,” a lonely woman hits a heroin addict with her car and falls blindly in love. In “No Universe,” Stephanie deals with her own infertility while watching her friend (who calls children “yard apes”) grapple with an abortion and then a guilt-induced pregnancy. These smart, quick-witted women strive for the unflappable sass and strength of Mae West, but often fall prey to their own fear and isolation.
Krouse’s perfect comic timing acts as a tribute to her muse, Mae West, pop culture’s original liberated woman, giving these stories their fresh, offbeat perspective. Potently witty, neurotic and nervy, the collection marks the arrival of an irresistible new voice in fiction.
