Wild Cards: The Second Virago Anthology
|Author:||Writing Women, Maggie Hannan (Editor)|
A lover haunted by the scent of wolves; a wife traded for a beautiful beggar; a dead mother swinging from a beam in a barn. These are some of the images in this second selection of disquieting prose and poetry by some of the best new women writers of 1999. Familiar topics are shuffled with wild cards, then re-dealt in another series of winning hands. It is brilliant contemporary writing from the next generation of literary stars.
