Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From the start of Elizabeth McKenzie’s beguiling fiction debut, we are drawn into the offbeat worldview of sharp-eyed, intrepid Ann Ransom. Stop That Girl chronicles Ann’s colorful coming-of-age travails, from her childhood in a disjointed family through her tender adolescence and beyond. Along the way, she discovers the absurdities that lurk around every corner of a young woman’s life, by way of oafish neighbors, overzealous boyfriends, prurient vegetable salesmen, sour landlords, and an iconoclast grandmother, known even to her family as Dr. Frost. Keenly funny and highly original, Stop That Girl is a brilliant examination of the exigencies of love and the fragile fabric of family, and heralds the emergence of a remarkable new voice in fiction.

Synopsis:

A series of interconnected short stories documents the colorful life and times of Ann Ransom, as well as her relationship with her family and her personal perspective on the world around, in a collection that includes "Dr. Frost," "We Know Where We Are, But Not Why," and "SOS." A first collection. Reader's Guide included. Reprint. 20,000 first printing.
