"Psychoanalyst, poet, and keeper of old stories Clarissa Pinkola Estes points out that wolves and women share many qualities: playfulness, strength, curiosity, bravery, they are adaptive, and each care deeply for their young. But both wolves and women have suffered a similar fate of being hounded, harassed, exhausted, marginalized, accused of being devious and of little value. Estes retells ancient myths and fairy tales from around the world and in doing so shines a light on a path which leads us back to our natural state -- and help us restore the power we carry within us."

"This novel sets out a terrifying dystopian future that at times is all too reminiscent of aspects of current society. Details of the past are revealed concurrently with present events, which creates an intriguing narrative of how the Republic of Gilead came to be. A powerful, albeit at times disturbing, book." -Rachael, at Antigone Books

With inimitable good humor, vulnerability, and boundless charm, Lindy West boldly shares how to survive in a world where not all stories are created equal and not all bodies are treated with equal respect, and how to weather hatred, loneliness, harassment, and loss, and walk away laughing. Shrill provocatively dissects what it means to become self-aware the hard way, to go from wanting to be silent and invisible to earning a living defending the silenced in all caps.
