The Terrible Girls
"The Terrible Girls comes from one of the fiercest, most potent, original writers around: a bloody flayer of skins, both other's and her own...a work of possessed and persuasive visionary power." -
"The Terrible Girls is a powerful account of erotic love which exchanges the comforts of illusion for more complex and less certain rewards."
The Times Literary Supplement
"In this brilliantly original work, Rebecca Brown gives us haunting parables of betrayal and love, of loss and resurrection, of loneliness and solidarity. Like a modern Djuna Barnes, Brown creates a language of telling that is fiercely beautiful and honest. This book is a love story unlike any you have read before. Its subversive and passionate transformation carry the lesbian literary voice onto the 21st century."
"A dry, witty, graceful–if savage–gift."
