by Andrea DworkinIntense, 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 against pornography. This fiction feels like narrativized distillations of legal testimony; the stories of abuse, rape, the lived effects of systemic sexual violence.
Cool format to the book - tall, thin, very small press.
