GRAVITY is about women: what we want, don't want, think we want but maybe don't; a lyrical and sometimes surreal tour through the psyches of female characters, slightly mad or bit too sane, stereotypes and image busters, that flies you away and brings you back to earth. It is a collection of seven stories and a novella about obsessed women: women consumed by revenge, women who can't get out of love triangles, women who are not even in their bodies when they make love. These cutting edge stories deal with the pleasures and difficulties of love and hate. As a feminist, Serin is aware of the traps that society creates for women. The characters in the stories have different levels of awareness of these traps and are struggling, with varying degrees of success, to escape them.Fiction. California Interest. Women's Studies.
