About the Book

Female Trouble

Female Trouble is Antonya Nelson's first story collection since being selected as one of The New Yorker's twenty best writers for the twenty-first century. Author of three previous collections and three novels, Nelson has consistently been praised for her precise and energetic prose, her wry, offbeat humor, and the vividness with which she evokes her characters' inner lives. All of these qualities are in evidence in Female Trouble, whose thirteen stories explore the vagaries of marriage and romance, the difficulties of family, and the revelations of female life.
