Synopses & Reviews
Rebecca Brown is the author of The Terrible Girls, The Gifts of the Body, What Keeps Me Here, and The Dogs.
"In Annie Oakley's Girl, people are so much larger, their motives, dreams, and mysteries so much more complex than you ever imagined. Love is so much more dangerous, grief so much more powerful, hope so much more tenuous and necessary. I read everything Rebecca Brown writes, watch for her books, and hunt down her short stories. She is simply one of the best contemporary lesbian writers around, and Annie Oakley's Girl is stunning." Dorothy Allison
"One of the freshest, most memorable story collections of my lifetime. And 'A Good Man,' one of the most important. Rarer than the newness, the wit, the vivid readability, is the deep caring understanding, the wholeness, the truth with which this astonishing, haunting writer creates her people. 'A Good Man' will be a revelation, an epiphany to many a reader." Tillie Olsen
