A natural evolution from the earlier, much-acclaimed short story collection "In Love & Trouble", these fourteen provocative and often humorous stories show women oppressed but no defeated. No longer do they excuse the aggression of others; no longer are they suspended in their unhappy condition. The woman here claim every bit of space they make. These are modern stories: about love, lust, frame, and cultural thievery; the perils of pornography, abortion, and rape; the delight of new lovers; and the rediscovery of old friends, affirmed even across self-imposed color lines.
