10 Women

Ten Women is George Bowering’s brand new collection of short fiction. Each of these stories offers us a portrait of a woman with whom he may or may not have had either an intimate and/or a meaningful relationship. You can’t really tell for sure. Depending on your proclivities, some of them might even seem pretty hot-like the lurid fantasies that illustrate the covers of paperback novels, the ethereal intellectual beauties that emanate from poetic fields of asphodels, or the petit bourgeois housewives that litter Alice Munro stories, these ten characters remind us that for every fetish there’s a partner.
