Synopsis

*2013 SCOTIABANK GILLER PRIZE LONGLIST* A sharply original debut collection, How To Get Along With Women showcases Elisabeth de Mariaffi’s keen eye and inventive voice. Infused with a close and present danger, these stories tighten the knot around power, identity, and sexuality, and draw the reader into the pivotal moments where—for better or for worse—we see ourselves for what we truly are.

And yes, there are women there, so you might as well try your hardest to get along with them — though this book won’t quite show you how, it goes just a bit further than that and begins to tell you why.
