Me Too Short Stories
August 31, 2019
What do women want? A voice. To be heard. Respect. To be believed. Justice. To be both safe and free. The women in these stories have daughters, sisters, friends. The minister worries about her parishioners. The banshee worries about the Hippocratic Oath. The microbiologist worries about her obligation to the dead. They will use any means to protect themselves and those they love: a childish jingle, a skillet full of cornbread, a candle, their own quick wits. We cannot ignore their voices.
Includes “Miss Evelyn Nesbit Presents” by Ana Brazil
This anthology is a treasure. Empowering, inspirational, and sometimes wickedly funny. Timely fiction like this provides a special kind of justice giving not only insight and empathy but a new strength to voices that must be heard. – Nationally bestselling author of Trust Me and The Murder List —Hank Phillippi Ryan
Elizabeth Zelvin has put together a strong collection that reminds us as if we ever need reminding how the daily lives of women can be affected by the conduct of calculating or even careless men. The characters in these stories will challenge, surprise, and inspire you. —New York Times bestselling author of The Better Sister, Alafair Burke
A soul-satisfying anthology of justice and revenge, expertly edited by Elizabeth Zelvin. Each story is a standout in its own way. If the deepest truths are revealed through fiction, then this anthology goes further, reflecting our own lives back and showing us how to live them just a bit better. —USA Today bestselling author of Cover of Snow and Wicked River, Jenny Milchman
