Publisher Comments:

Reissued to coincide with the paperback publication of "Because They Wanted To", this captivating novel shimmers with dark intensity and wicked wit. In a stunning synthesis of eroticism, rage, pathos, and humor, Gaitskill's "fine storyteller's pace and brilliant metaphors" ("The New York Times Book Review") create a haunting and unforgettable journey into the dark side of contemporary life and the deepest recesses of the soul. 336 pp. National print ads & publicity.

I really enjoyed the story intertwining with the Ayn Rand type of philosophy. As a big fan of Rands books, I thought the author did very well showing the effect such powerful philosophies have on young adults. And what young adults do in their twenties, affect the rest of their lives. As a female, I also thought the author did very well in protraying how sex is so confusing, unusual, erotic, and normal for young women. I am older now, and can see much more clear how many phases a person goes through thier lives, but the threads of live start at an early age and can be seen emerging thoughout these phases. I think Mary Gaitskill has written a very engaging book that I have already started to talk to others about. I will be reading other things by Ms. Gaitskill.
