"With brevity, abstraction, and narrative tension, Polesso offers a poignant look at women alternately broken down and resilient. Fans of Lucia Berlin will love these tense and twisty tales." --Publishers Weekly
"Borges Polesso explores the depths of amorous relationships between women young and old, married and single, out and closeted, independent and cripplingly co-dependent--but first and foremost, in love...A romp through 33 stories of lesbian love." --Kirkus Reviews
