    1 thought on “The New Woman's Broken Heart: Short Stories”

    1. Intense, and aside from certain 1970-s signifiers (Hell's Angels, writing as a possible blue-collar profession), contemporary feeling. Stylization of punctuation is similar to much of the alt-lit prose, but I can't honestly believe many of them have read this. The story that examines the racial implications of the protagonist's boyfriend's German Shepard raping the protagonist's dog is brilliant. And chilling. I was familiar with Dworkin via her legal work with MacKinnon and her fierce arguments [...]

    2. Considering how short the book is, it took me a relatively long time to read. Content-wise, brutal but not gratuitously so.

    3. Though I haven't officially read any of Dworkin's nonfiction yet, I believe our politics are very similar, so I expected to adore this collection of stories. It's a bit too abstract for me, though. My favorite story is the longest and the last, "The Slit."

    4. "I have no patience with the untorn, anyone who hasn't weathered rough weather, fallen apart, been ripped to pieces, put herself back together, big stitches, jagged cuts, nothing nice, then something shines out" What a brilliant book! I thoroughly enjoyed reading it despite it being emotionally difficult, as the writing style is pretty unconventional & informal, which makes it 'fun' to read. The issues/themes discussed in the book are dealt with in a very raw and honest manner, with no effor [...]

    5. This was a very short read but very difficult in that it was quite sadistic and sad. The writing is sort of like poetry stream of consciousness. The last two stories were the best.

    6. I've never read something so bad, from the postmodernist hate of initial upper case, to the style itself. I know that what she's writing about is somewhat autobiographical, and that a lot of it are terrible things to happen to women, but the style itself was dense, hard to follow at times, and irritating. Maybe Dworkin is one of these authors whose work is hit and miss, for me.
