A wife refuses her husband's entreaties to remove the mysterious green ribbon from around her neck.

A woman recounts her sexual encounters as a plague spreads across the earth.

A salesclerk in a mall makes a horrifying discovery about a store's dresses.

A dark, shimmering slice into womanhood, Her Body and Other Parties is wicked and exquisite.
