Curious Women & Other Creatures
CURIOUS WOMEN & OTHER CREATURES
by Sam Le Butt
Anything is possible in these strange new worlds. In her first short story collection, emerging British author Sam Le Butt takes us on a series of journeys, each messier than the last, to meet her cast of Curious Women and Other Creatures. It is less a prodding-of, and more a splitting-and-dancing-in-the-entrails-of, the idea of ‘woman as monstrous’ — an idea that persistently haunted our screens, our politics, and our minds; an idea that variously brands women’s bodies and minds as wild, slippery, dangerous, and (if we’re lucky) miraculous.
