Mary is a bit raw for me. I haven't heard of this book, I guess I'll have to try again.

We may not be as safe walking alone as we once were.

Paula, raw as in ... ? I think this is the first time I read Gaitskill, it's a short story, published in the New Yorker free to read .

helen, I suppose nowadays someone would call the police seeing a kid walking alone ... at night ...

She's fearless. Read "Veronica".

Being careful not to fall down any holes in the road of course...!

Paula, thanks for this. In the meantime I have read a little bit about Mary Gaitskill and her work. Fearless is a very good description. Raw, too. I am not sure if I will read "Veronica", perhaps too raw for me, too.

Paul, that's a good advice nowadays around here.
