So We Can Glow : Stories, Paperback / softback Book

So We Can Glow : Stories Paperback / softback

Paperback / softback

Description

From Kentucky to the California desert, these forty-two short stories expose the hearts of girls and women in moments of obsessive desire and fantasy, wildness and bad behavior, brokenness and fearlessness, and more.

On a hot July night, teenage girls sneak out of the house to meet their boyfriends by the train tracks.

Members of a cult form an unsettling chorus as they proclaim their adoration for the same man.

A woman luxuriates in a fantasy getaway to escape her past.

A love story begins over cabbages in a grocery store, and a laundress's life is consumed by her obsession with a baseball star.

After the death of a sister, two high school friends kiss all night and binge-watch Winona Ryder movies. Leesa Cross-Smith's sensuous stories -- some long, some gone in a flash, some told over text and emails -- drench readers in nostalgia for summer nights and sultry days.

They recall the intense friendships of teenage girls and the innate bonds between mothers, the first heady rush of desire, and the pure exhilaration of womanhood, all while holding up the wild souls of women so they can catch the light.
