Charlatan, new and selected stories, Cris Mazza ; edited by Gina Frangello ; foreword by Rick Moody - paperback

Summary
"Cris Mazza's work has often been regarded as "disturbing" for its exploration of sexual politics, victimhood, personal accountability, and acts of sexual violence. With an introduction by Gina Frangello and a foreword by Rick Moody, Charlatan charts the development of a dynamic body of fiction by a writer due for discovery by millennial readers unsatisfied by mainstream feminism."--provided by publisher
