Summary

From the highly acclaimed author of The Metaphysical Touch, a funny, entertaining and thought provoking story collection. Across a series of vivid, untamed landscapes Sylvia Brownrigg's characters wander in search of the obvious-love, fame, a good recipe for canaps-as well as the less obvious.In "Hussy from the West" the narrator undertakes a long erotic quest for satisfaction; in "The Bird Chick" a visionary organizes some unusual park inhabitants for a bold experiment in theater. In Sylvia Brownrigg's starkly original Ten Women Who Shook the World, wherever these maverick women travel, their bold, comical voices urge us to follow.AUTHORBIO: Sylvia Brownrigg is the author of Pages for You and The Metaphysical Touch. She has a degree in philosophy from Yale University. Born in California, she currently lives in San Francisco.
